Landsec is, as ever, committed to supporting our customers, service partners and communities.
Following this week’s government announcement on the closure of all non-essential shops, we are working closely with our customers to safely and securely close all non-essential retail premises with immediate effect. We will ensure retailers are able to collect stock if they wish to do so. Our sites which provide essential retail services such as food and pharmacies, and other shops as detailed by the announcement, will remain open to the public to allow them to access these services.
It’s important to everyone in our organisation that Landsec continues to act as a force for good in the communities we call home – in fact, it’s more important now than ever before. We’re offering free parking for NHS staff at a number of our city centre sites close to hospitals, including Leeds and Cardiff, to help reduce the number of people using public transport, and, in London, will be welcoming mobile blood donation hubs to our Lewisham centre car park – an offer we’d like to extend to other boroughs - to help create additional space at the hospital. We’re also working with our long-term community partners as they ascertain how they should respond to recent developments to offer funding, space and virtual volunteering. We’re keen to help our communities in the most meaningful way, so please do contact us at email@example.com if you have an idea you’d like to discuss.
We understand that this is a difficult time for businesses and are very alive to the impact of Covid-19 on our customers. We want to listen to our customers to find out how we can best help them navigate the coming weeks and months. We are keen to encourage regular dialogue and, where help is needed, we will be supportive.
In these turbulent times, it’s vital that we all communicate with increased frequency and work with greater collaboration. Detailed above are some of the steps we’re taking as a business to ensure that our approach to Covid-19 is in line with the values we hold as an organisation – but please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance in any of the areas outlined. At the core of our business is a commitment to support our customers and our communities, and this will hold true over the coming weeks and months.
