We strive to make a positive impact wherever we can. We embrace our responsibilities towards the local community and there are a number of ways in which we support and engage with people and organisations nearby.
We are proud to support the local economy through direct employment opportunities and supplier relationships. We put in place a Local Employment Plan at the outset. The facility employs over 50 people, many of whom live locally. Wherever possible, we also use local suppliers of services and materials.
But we go further than that, supporting local community causes through the Rookery South Community Trust Fund and contributing to tree-planting in local woodlands via the Forsest of Marston Vale Trust and the Millennium Country Park. We have established a public footpath in the scenic area around the site and are helping eligible households with their bills through our Energy Initiative, as well as engaging directly with residents via our Community Liaison Panel.
