"One of the Greenest Shopping Centres in the Country"
St George’s Shopping Centre is pleased to advise that we have revised our waste strategy and have refined our waste streams.
We now recycle, metal, cardboard, plastic, glass, wood and may other materials. All other waste is diverted from landfill, even sanitary waste which will be recycled into roof tiles
This makes St. Georges one of the ‘greenest’ centres in the country! With 100% of its mainstream waste being diverted from landfill
All cleaning products used at St Georges are now biodegradable. With many more ideas in the pipeline to make this one of the greenest centre’s.
Andrew Thomas-Knowles, Centre Manager of St Georges Shopping Centre comments: “We are delighted to be at the forefront of environmental sustainability and will work hard to maintain St George’s position as a flagship ‘Green’ centre.”

St George’s shopping centre car park, Gravesend, has been recognised as being one of the most user friendly in the region and has won the ‘Park Mark' Safer Parking Award. The award is an Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) national initiative awarded to St George’s car park in recognition of its high standards of safety and security and its contribution to lowering crime levels.
St George’s shopping centre manage Nicky Blanchard said “We are delighted that the hard work of the centre owners Edinburgh House has paid off, and that the transformed car park means customers can enjoy their shopping trip safe in the knowledge that they have parked in a secure environment. This demonstrates Edinburgh House’s commitment to improving Gravesend and we are proud to be part of the campaign to reduce local crime and disorder levels.”
Leader of Gravesham Borough Council, Councillor Michael Snelling, added his congratulations. “Achieving the Park Mark award deserves high praise for the determination of the St George’s Shopping Centre management to both beat a vandalism and graffiti problem and provide a new, welcoming image that helps the town attract new visitors and shoppers.”
The Park Mark Safer Parking award is granted to parking areas that have achieved the requirements of a risk assessment as conducted by Kent Police. These requirements mean the parking operator has put in place measures that help to deter criminal activity and anti-social behaviour, thereby doing everything they can to prevent crime and reduce the fear of crime in their parking area.
