Local Business Support Strategy

As a part of our commitment to maximise the economic gain for the surrounding area, we are developing a Local Business Database. The purpose of this is to ensure that opportunities for local businesses to secure contracts are captured. Local suppliers, contractors and businesses will be informed of opportunities and facilitated in applications ensuring that they are considered for any appropriate opportunities. These include:

  • Road building: machine drivers, quarries, lorry drivers and ground workers
  • Grounds maintenance, fencing materials & fencing contractors
  • Engineering, steel fixing, surveying, formwork and shuttering
  • Electrical supplies and electrical contracting
  • Fuel supply, traffic and transport engineering supplies
  • Plant and machinery repair and hire, tyres and servicing
  • Supply of materials and goods
  • Provision of lodging and travel
