Construction Employment and Skills Plan for Land at Treledan, Saltash

HJA delivered an Employment and Skills Plan to accompany a granted planning application for a residential-led mixed-use development in Saltash and to help maximise local employment benefits.

The development consisted of up to 1,000 homes on land at Broadmoor Farm (now known as Treledan), Saltash. Our client was seeking to submit a reserved matters planning application for the first phase of the residential-led mixed-use development, which comprises 380 dwellings. With the intent to move onto the first phase of construction, Barratt David Wilson Homes sought to further develop the plan to encourage and maximise local recruitment.

HJA developed an Employment and Skills Plan in-line with the guidance set by the National Skills Academy for Construction and Construction Industry Training Board. Desk-based research was conducted to identify the local stakeholders that could contribute to achieving targets including education institutions and training providers. Seven key performance indicators and minimum benchmarks sought to be achieved in the local area by the development were outlined for Barratt David Wilson Homes. The Employment and Skills Plan HJA developed was delivered to our client to add onto their planning application so that it would include the goal of maximising the local benefit of this development.
