King & Co is duty-bound to its local community. For the continued prosperity of future generations, every project is tailored to the grain of its locality and the product of an iterative approach to design that allows for meaningful engagement. It is our pride, and what makes our attitude to development unique. 

Grassroots Engagement

Homes are an outward expression of an inner aspiration and we understand that new developments help shape the social fabric of a community.

Many local stakeholders we speak to are positive about progress and change, but disenfranchised by the opacity of the process. Meaningful collaboration and an active ‘design dialogue’ are cornerstones of King & Co’s approach that give local communities a critical role in the life of a project from inception to delivery.

By putting people at the very heart of placemaking, our projects are balanced, relevant and bespoke to the local community.

We choose to engage directly with local people face-to-face, door-to-door, evolving our designs collaboratively.

King & Co facilitates the engagement of all generations to participate in decisions about the built environment, promoting a process which ensures development reflects the aspirations of all people in the community.

King & Co supports and participates in local events and initiatives. It is one small way we can give back to the communities that support us.

Local initiatives
and supporting local charities

King & Co supports the Willow Foundation, a local charity which organises Special Days for seriously ill young adults including An Evening with a Lion at the Red Lion in Hatfield hosted by British & Irish Lion and World Cup winner, Kyran Bracken MBE.

We have also advocated for Keech Hospice Care, raising money for adults and children receiving specialist care.
