Being a part of Peddimore means investing in the wider community and creating an environment in which you, your employees and local businesses can flourish.
Our investment and commitment at Peddimore extend beyond the physical infrastructure required to deliver a great place. The development must deliver benefits beyond its boundaries; it must deliver a social return on our collective investment and create a positive legacy for years to come. Through our extensive and continuing engagement, we have been able to clearly identify where the real opportunities lie for maximising this return. The opportunities lie in providing a future workforce with the essential skills to compete for employment in both the construction and operational phases; connecting a potential workforce with you through supporting transport infrastructure, and connecting you with the local supply chain.
Working with our established Peddimore partners, we are ensuring that those with employment potential are supported and offered the training and skills they need to become prospective employees in either our construction or your operation.
Our investment in local schools and the Building Birmingham Scholarship programme seeks to nurture a longer-term talent pool as well as reinforce the need for, and virtues of, the industrial and logistics sector.
A public transport strategy developed in consultation with Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) and Birmingham City Council, which will ensure Peddimore is directly served by enhanced bus services, including connections to key locations such as ‘Sprint Stops’, the local labour pool and wider labour pool accessibility via Birmingham City Centre.
Deployment of a demand responsive service which could be used to provide links to Coleshill Parkway Station and nearby villages as well as feed into bus services at Walmley.
A framework will be put in place which allows you to readily connect with local providers of routine goods and services that may be essential to the smooth running of your activities on site. By including tried and tested Social Enterprises, you will have the opportunity to enhance the returns from your available spend.
Buying local will further support our environmental sustainability objectives and the local economy.
