Chartering a successful public partnership

REGENERATING the district is the aim of three organisations which have celebrated a partnership charter.

Representatives came together from North Somerset Council, Scape and Kier to sign a the charter.

At an event hosted at the Council’s Castlewood Offices, in Clevedon, the three organisations celebrated this commitment and have set out steps required to support the local economy by recruiting and training people from the area for construction projects.

Delivering high quality schemes on time and in budget, health and safety requirements and a considerate approach to the environment are the fundamental messages within the charter.

The council has been working with Scape for the past three years as part of its drive to secure better value for money and speed up the process in buying in suppliers to deliver its construction schemes.
