A lasting social legacy

The Peel Group has been investing in communities for over 40 years, creating employment opportunities and assisting in wealth creation, and often taking a lead to achieve our vision.

From MediaCityUK at Salford Quays to creating Intu Trafford Centre, from the recently opened Gloucester Quays to our key project plans, Peel continue to invest in communities to create sustainable environments where people and businesses can flourish.

The social impacts of The Peel Group however, go well beyond the employment and wealth creation established by our investment and development activities. Engaging with the communities in which we operate has always been central to our approach to sustainable growth. Peel has brought added value to our comunities across a range of activities, conservatiely valued at approximately £70 million since 1996.

Examples of our charitable and community engagement include.

  • A donation of £12.5 million to the Imperial War Museum North in Trafford Park helped facilitate it to proceed, providing the area with a world class visitor attraction of great historical significance housed in an architectural masterpiece.

 

  • Land valued at £18 million was donated at our Glasgow Harbour development to enable the building of a transport museum, already a major visitor attraction for the Glasgow area.

 

  • Supporting and encouraging the public use of waterways is also a key agenda for Peel. The Bridgewater Way is a regeneration project that will create a 65km/39 mile route along the Bridgewater Canal for cycling, walking and community use.

 

  • Supporting the new Manchester Children's Hospital appeal and raising in excess of £1.5 million over two years. This began with a charitable donation of £1 million and was supported by a range of fundraising activity including the first ever swim of the  Manchester Ship Canal by James Whittaker over two days.
