Local labour clause - 'The Gates' development
In every planning application that we accept we include a local labour clause.
A local labour clause requires developers to provide a strategy that promotes the local supply chain and the employment of local people. The clause is a Labour-Party-led initiative.
Through the clause many local people have been employed as apprentices and workers.
We have accepted a development application on Knifesmithgate which has seen two local people employed by windows installation company, MW Windows.
