Meet the buyer event announced
The Flintshire County Council Strategic Housing and Regeneration Programme (SHARP) is making a positive impact on small local businesses within the county.
The programme is building new council and affordable homes across Flintshire.
The contractor appointed by the council, Wates Residential North, is holding an event that will provide an opportunity for local small businesses to find out more about these exciting new housing developments with a view to being employed on a sub-contractor basis. All local small businesses that are construction related and based in Flintshire are welcome to visit the Wates office, old Mold Library on Raikes Lane in Mold on 19 July between 8am and 10am to find out more. The invitation is extended to all areas of construction including groundworks, bricklayers, roofers, M&E (PLU AND ELEC), plasterers, joiners, painters, landscapers and fencers. The council's business development team will be attending the event, which will be run in partnership with Flintshire in Business.
Flintshire County Council's Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor Bernie Attridge, said:
"The successful partnership between the Council and Wates has already seen many local businesses benefit from working with us. The next phase of SHARP opens the door to other local businesses, no matter what size, to take advantage of this opportunity.
"We are keen to continue to generate employment opportunities through the use of local businesses. I would encourage small businesses in the construction industry to attend this event to find out more and see how they can get involved."
