Community - Tax - Fair Trade - Litigation - Equality


Members of the Bericote team volunteering to refurbish one of our sponsored homes in Wolverhampton.

The Bericote Community Charter

Because of our community charter, we have never taken a planning application to appeal, never faced a JR challenge and never had a planning refusal. At every stage of the development process, from site selection, pre planning, planning and construction we aim to:

  • Work with transparency

    Embrace the spirit and requirements of the Local Authority planning policy and Statements of Community Involvement.

  • Listen to the people

    Undertake meaningful consultation with local people and their representatives upon all new full and/or outline planning applications.

  • Keep close relationships

    Pro-actively work in partnership with key local stakeholders to gain their views on our proposals and then seek to respond to concerns through design and layout refinements.

Bericote seeks to regenerate disused contaminated industrial sites and only where these are not available will development on other sites be considered.

  • Tax

    At Bericote we believe in always paying full UK tax on all profits made from our operations. We do not, never have and never will use off-shore vehicles or ‘tax havens’ to avoid our UK tax liabilities. We are proud to be a 100% domiciled company.

  • Fair Trade

    Bericote seek to achieve best value for money in all purchasing and in return we adhere to suppliers’ settlement terms, and often settle before the due date. As such, we commit to settle all suppliers invoices within 15 working days.

  • Litigation

    Bericote and the Directors have never been involved in a single piece of litigation. None of our companies have ever been taken into administration. This is an enviable record which we proudly maintain by only making promises we know we can fulfil. All of our directors have unblemished records.

Equal opportunities

Being on the Equality Register, we are always seeking to ensure we are providing equal opportunities. Everyone should have the same chance at job roles regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, religion or disabilities. We take all the necessary steps to make sure our offices are accessible to any disability and never discriminate.
