The Public Affairs Team


The work we do can have an impact on a wide range of external stakeholders and community groups. Equally, external activities such as policy changes, elections or local planning decisions can influence our activities and the way we work.


The Public Affairs Team supports the wider business in its interactions with political and community stakeholders, including Members of Parliament and Councillors at all local authority levels.

We also help respond to local issues, relevant policy consultations, and legislative changes that affect the company’s operations - ensuring these are communicated across the business.
