Community Investment

This month after seeing the children returning back to school and the new curriculum in place, the site has engaged with more of the public due to three complaints within the last month which have all been dealt with effectively and closed within a timely manner.

McLaren have seen an increase of people accessing the Cambium site, there has been a high influx of traffic and complaints have been raised in regards to parking. We have therefore been in direct liaison with the local council to enforce parking limitations to stop any disruptions to walkways, tickets are now being issued to anyone who is caught parking irresponsibly.

The site has also carried out an independent campaign against parking on the local foot paths with a good level of success. McLaren will this over the coming months. McLaren have also been regularly carrying out litter pics around the site confines.

McLaren are encouraging the local neighbours of the site to continue to notify us of any of further disruptions that we can be in assistance with this via the Considerate Constructors Scheme feedback form.

McLaren will be working with Wandsworth Highways within the next month to confirm the Section 278 Highways works to Victoria Drive that will take place. This therefore may cause some minor disruption whilst the works are being carried out. Further information will be distributed to those residents who will be effected.

As part of Victoria Drive’s ongoing commitment to local employment, we will be introducing office work experience to encourage females into the industry and will be working closely with Wandsworth Council ‘BEST’ project to source suitable candidates, and will be seeing them be employed onto the site in the middle of October. These opportunities provide an introduction into the industry which may not be available to the trainees otherwise.
