About the organisation

Last year, The Partnership announced projects to diversify the business, putting in place ambitious plans for 40% of profits to come from outside of the retail sector by 2030, which includes the private housing sector.

Acting as the developer, investor and operator, John Lewis will have a long-term commitment to the success of the development and its place within the community. With a plan to do more than simply create new homes, The Partnership wishes to create new thriving communities that can integrate with and augment the existing communities in the locality.
