Community benefit Involving communities from the earliest stages in discussion about community benefit opportunities is an important part of the process. Making sure that communities benefit directly from hosting our projects is an essential part of the process of developing a project proposal. Early discussions Early discussions begin as soon as we begin work on a new site. The discussion initially is broad, and focuses on understanding the community’s priorities, and understanding what opportunities need to be explored. Developing options The basis for the development of a community benefit package is built upon the community’s feedback. We work with communities to understand and explore in more detail what is possible and how it could be delivered. Commitment Once we understand the community’s interests and needs, we invest in the development of an appropriate vehicle for the funding. Long-term agreement The package is secured through a long-term agreement with a body or organisation who manage the benefit, and make sure it is delivered.
