10 community commitments

Construction sites should try as much as possible to have a positive effect on the local community.

This site set out 10 commitments to help reduce the impact that construction activity would have on the local community:

  1. Encouraged their workforce to use alternative modes of transport to travel to the project, to reduce private car use;
  2. Operated a free construction hotline 24 hours a day, providing a direct line to the Community Relations team;
  3. Managed deliveries to site, by providing dedicated times and routes to the site;
  4. Continued to communicate to local residents about progress on the project and the community engagement programme;
  5. Being a responsible neighbour, encouraging staff to be respectful and accountable for their actions at all times;
  6. Actively managed and minimised the impacts of the construction project by implementing an environmental management programme;
  7. Promoted local employment and training opportunities on the site;
  8. Provided and promoted mechanisms to communicate opportunities for local businesses;
  9. Recycled, reduced and reused materials on the site to minimise waste;
  10. Provided a safe and secure environment across the site.
