Filling A Hole In Communities
Home Social Value Filling A Hole In Communities
By occupying property instead of leaving them vacant we fill a hole that would otherwise be created in the neighbourhood.
Small local shops can suffer loss of income when a large office or industrial building close and their teams are no longer spending money in the local area. Our live-in guardians and charitable occupiers can replace some of this custom which is lost when a property is vacated, thereby helping support small local businesses.
Our live-in guardians and charities engage with the neighbouring occupiers and fill the hole in the community which would be left if the property was left unoccupied
Neighbours in the immediate vicinity of a premises that has been closed can feel the negative impact of the absence of the people and activity which once was there. Our live-in guardians and charities engage with the neighbouring occupiers and fill the hole in the community which would be left if the property was left unoccupied.
Vacant property creates a blight on a neighbourhood. Broken windows, vandalism, bill posting and other such publicly visible signs of deterioration encourage further dereliction. This can have a negative impact on neighbouring shops and a local area more generally. Steel screens serve as one of the boldest advertisements of dereliction and encourage further deterioration and have a depressing impact on the morale of a local neighbourhood.
Protection by occupation fills a hole in the community and enables a building to create social value when it is in between uses, instead of being left vacant.
