The use of CCS Champions to promote the Scheme Code and communicate with the local community can be very beneficial.
These selected champions can ensure that your site is meeting the requirements of the Code to be a considerate constructor.
They also offer a familiar face to residents as the champion is one point of contact for queries, complaints and compliments.
Examples of how sites have promoted the Code of Considerate Practice, their CCS Champion and contact details, include:
- One company developed generic CCS information boards which were displayed on site and contained the company CCS Charter, signatures of team members signed up to support the Charter, a photo and contact of the site CCS champion, the last CCS report and other relevant information. The site displayed signs on the frontage headed “How is my site?” An open invitation was given to contact the company with any comments or suggestions, with both a telephone number and email address provided;
- An A3 notice was displayed externally with a picture of the site’s CCS champion and a photograph against each of the five Code headings. The photos were ones taken of the site and showed the public what is expected in terms of image standards;
- This site appointed a local resident as the gateman and CCS champion on their site, his local knowledge and willingness to get involved with his local community gave off a great impression of the site to passing members of the public.
