community(kəˈmjuːnɪti) n. 1. A group that have common goals, interests, aspirations, identity and heritage.


We recognise that each Community Shopping Centre is unique and serves its local town and population.


We celebrate this local diversity but seek to bring retail expertise and national perspective to enhance the local offering, delivering vibrant places, successful retailers and sustainable jobs.


We work hard to channel the energy of a range of stakeholders and deliver positive change in the communities in which we invest.

Shopping Centres at the Heart of the Community

Our places are at the heart of where people across the UK lead their everyday lives. They provide easy, convenient access to essential everyday shopping and services. We host 160 million visitors a year, almost all of whom travel less than 10 miles and of which 78% visit at least once a week.


To connect with our customers and communities, in the last year, we have hosted 199 events and supported 40 different community groups. Each of our centres has a nominated charity, collectively raising tens of thousands of pounds. We also provide grants through Project Dirt to help community groups. This has contributed £62,000 to support 36 small locally focused charities. 

Ellandi in the retail property community

We aim to work collaboratively with the wider retail property industry to learn from one another and to create a dynamic industry that meets the needs and desires of shoppers, retailers and investors. Ellandi has always taken a lead in debating and leading on the important issues of the day; exemplified by our annual conference Retail Rocks. 


The Ellandi team is actively engaged with many leading trade bodies, such as Revo, The BPF, the UK Green Building Council, Crefc and The BPF Futures Network.


Mark Robinson, co-founder of Ellandi is the President Elect of Revo. 


We were proud to be an inaugral supporter of the One Great Day Charity and to help it to become the industry's adopted national fund raising initiative, raising money for GOSH and children's charities across the UK.
