Eco-town looking for workforce
12:00pm Thursday 12th April 2012 in Bicester
Businesses in Bicester and the surrounding area are being invited to register as a potential supplier or labourer for the eco-development.
The move comes after a local business portal was launched at The Pope John Paul II Community Centre, the Causeway, on April 4, to give local businesses a chance to be part of the 5,000 home eco-town in North-west Bicester.
Organised by developer and housing association A2Dominion, it is looking for bricklayers and builders, caterers and gardeners.
Steve Hornblow, development manager at A2Dominion, said: “There are many reasons why the North-west Bicester eco-town project will be of great value to the local community, one of which is in the intended involvement of local businesses and suppliers from this first phase through to completion.
“Their participation will be vital to the development and strength of the local economy and employment in this exciting new community.”
