Gelder Group will be exhibiting at the 2018 Lincolnshire Show. Join us on Wednesday 20th and Thursday the 21st of June to help us celebrate 30 years in business. Come along to stand 17 on 5th Avenue and share a celebratory drink. During your visit, don’t forget to ask us about our plans for the future and Vision 2020, we’d love to let you know what we’re doing and where we’re heading!
Our staff support many charities and as a company (and as part of our Vision 2020) we want to be able to support them to pursue their charitable endeavours. So, when Gary Rousseau (Contracts Manager) requested to enter a team in the Charity Golf Day at his local club ‘Blankney‘, the company was delighted to be able to support him and the charity Prostate Cancer UK. The formidable team led by Gary also included Joe Kendal (Surveyor), Paul Staines (Contracts Manager) and Arran Fullwood (Finance Director). On the day Gary commented:
We didn’t perform as well as I hoped on the day with new players Joe and Arran in the ranks, but it was a great day and I was just happy that the company supported us to attend and we were able to raise money for a great charity.
Gelder Group have received planning for 16 new properties at Kirton-in-Lindsey, the result of three years hard work and tenacity, dealing with a plethora of public bodies.
The company now has a land bank of 47 plots as well as a further four sites at various stages within the planning system as it looks to rollout ‘Gelder Living’ and reintegrate itself within the private housing sector.
On the planning decision, which was awarded at appeal, CEO Steve Gelder comments:
Part of our 20 by 17 Vision was to become a developer of ‘high quality affordable homes’ and this hence has carried forward to Vision 2020 where we will be known for our ‘enterprising approach to new development opportunities’. So it was a good feeling to receive a positive inspectorate decision within hours of launching our Vision 2020.
The Group will now liaise with various statutory bodies, before hopefully being in a position to commence the development in the Autumn.
Following the success of Vision 2017, which saw the Gelder Group named as Lincolnshire’s ‘Fastest growing company’ the group’s senior management team were keen to create a new set of goals to take it through the next 3 years.
After 6 months of hard work, hundreds of staff hours, consultations at all levels of the company and away days, the Gelder Group is proud to launch Vision 2020.
The company retains its principle vision of addressing the skills shortage by ‘Inspiring a new generation in construction’. Vision 2020 aims to further strengthen the group’s already strong commitment to the community, its staff, investing heavily into smart technology and be enterprising in its approach to new development opportunities.
On the launch, CEO Steve Gelder commented:
It will be very difficult to eclipse our 20 by 17 Vision achievements but as I said in my introduction back in 2014, I do lead an amazing group of people. This compiled with our ‘Can-do’ attitude for which we are known and the next few years might just be our most exciting yet.
