The workforce at Lovat Parks is encouraged to contribute to environmental initiatives and biodiversity as part of its commitment to making a difference. Established in 2017, its business is holiday homes and parks spread across Cornwall, Kent, Norfolk, Suffolk and the New Forest.

With a team of around 100 people, it aims to create a strong sense of community both at its holiday parks and in the local areas, where it gets involved in supporting charity initiatives.It recruits locally and purchases locally where it can, as well as endorsing initiatives such as beach clean-ups.

Lovat Parks has a strong sense of purpose and defined values. It was founded on the basis of doing business in the right way, with a focus on giving back and making a difference in the broadest sense. For those who work there, this growing company puts an emphasis on coaching and developing talent, and on ensuring that internal succession opportunities are maximised. It offers a benefits package and an employee assistance programme.

On the environment, the company receives an annual audit from David Bellamy's conservation team and takes on board any recommendations as well as sharing its own initiatives. It practises targeted planting and plans the parks so that they do not disturb local biodiversity. Lovat Parks plans to expand through acquisition and the development of existing parks, engaging the team at every stage of growth.
