Working at Mayfields

Striking a work/life balance can be difficult when you are commuting long distances. Part of our vision at Mayfields is to create a place that will support local jobs and attract new businesses, enabling people to work close to where they live.

Flexible space to work

Plans cover a wide range of commercial opportunities including a variety of retail and office spaces. These will encourage new enterprises and attract existing businesses that wish to expand to Mayfields.

There will be a well-designed range of spaces for local shops, independent traders and craftspeople. Flexible offices, meeting places and studios will appeal to SMEs, start-ups, artists and creative industries. This physical infrastructure will be supported by a robust digital infrastructure, so residents can either work from home, local hubs, cafes or public buildings, as well as office environments.

Local job opportunities

With its green technology, infrastructure, services and amenities, Mayfields will generate lots of new, innovative jobs locally. This will give people the opportunity to develop a career where they live, rather than commute to other towns and cities.

Provision will be made for start-up companies in a co-working hub, while local young people will benefit from new apprenticeships and jobs created by the town. Further economic potential also rests in Mayfields’ location at the centre of the growing Gatwick Diamond economic region.

We want to create enough employment space to ensure that there is a job opportunity for every home within Mayfields. We are not creating a new commuter town for London; instead it is designed to encourage people to work in or near their home.
