Site registered with the Considerate Constructers Scheme with aim to achieve minimum score of 32 (exceeded on 2 audits), responsible sourcing of timber from FSC suppliers, use of recycled aggregates and effective management of site impacts e.g. waste, energy, water consumption and transport.   SWMP encouraged reduction, re-use and recycling of materials and identified target for non-hazardous waste not to exceed 3.2 tonnes or 3.4m2 per 100m2.
