“We will support our local communities and create a workplace where employees are valued
The company encourages community liaison and is a member of the MPA Good Neighbour Scheme. It supports many local community projects and promotes good relationships with its neighbours through Quarry Liaison Committees. The committees, that consist of local residents, councillors and officials meet on a regular basis to discuss and resolve any issues which may arise regarding quarry development, biodiversity etc.
Open days have been run in the past to coincide with key developments at the Quarries. The local community were invited to see for themselves the development. Local communities are also invited along to Public meetings when planning issues arise.
All sites participate in the MPA (Mineral Products Association) Stay Safe campaign which involves radio and TV broadcasts, visits to schools and visual aids for community support officers.
