After 18 years of sensitive preparation and wide-scale public consultation, the Spitalfields Estate regeneration programme completed. Since then, we have overseen Spitalfields’ development from an ambitious new development, to one of the most visited attractions in London, and a vibrant hub for occupiers, visitors, and the local community.
Crucial to this success has been our holistic approach to management and fully embracing the wider community. The introduction of the various markets, the street food offering, the community & charitable event programme, the rolling public art programme & seasonal activities combined with the security and police partnership and stakeholder contribution have all contributed to help create a sense of place and incorporate the scheme into the local community, critical to the establishment of Spitalfields as a destination to live, work and play.
Diversity & Inclusion
Spitalfields is committed to supporting the principle of equal opportunities, and opposes all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination on the grounds of colour, race, nationality, ethnic origin, sex, pregnancy, marital or civil partnership status, disability, religion, belief, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, socio-economic status. Our aim is to create an environment free from unlawful discrimination, victimisation and harassment in which all employees, subcontractors, tenants and visitors are treated with dignity and respect. All employees and service partners are aware of the requirements of our Diversity and Inclusion policy and care is taken to guard against more subtle and unconscious forms of discrimination which may not be immediately obvious. The policy extends to our Market Traders code of conduct and is fundamental to creating an inclusive and welcoming destination for tenants and visitors alike.
We at Spitalfields expect all our suppliers and service partners to comply with our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking code of conduct. A rigorous Global Supplier procurement procedure is in place and there is a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery. We consistently review and strengthen our processes and systems to minimise the risk of human rights infringements anywhere in our supply chain.
