Community benefits

We’re thrilled our long-term development partnership will allow the borough of Brentwood to actively contribute towards its economic growth.
By optimising the socio-economic and environmental impacts of our activity, we aim to develop communities and improve housing – to bring real, tangible benefits to both businesses and residents.

Skills and training

As we progress towards procuring contractors for our projects in 2021/22, we’ll be seeking to use contractors and suppliers that are locally based in the community. We’re also working with the Chamber of Commerce to support our development activity and assist us in keeping the pound local where we can. We believe this will be instrumental in creating new jobs, skills and training opportunities, including apprenticeships. As a result, we have been actively engaging with local colleges and South Essex Construction Training Academy (SECTA) to plan how we can boost construction skills, hands on training and real-world experience.

Economic development

The JV is committed to actively supporting Brentwood Council’s Corporate Strategy and the delivery of its Economic Development Strategy. Brentwood Borough Council has defined five key priorities for 2020-2025 and we are uniquely placed to support and deliver against these aims. Moreover we expect that our early schemes will contribute to the Council’s Covid recovery plan.
