A commitment to be a force for societal and environmental good is integral to SEGRO’s purpose and strategy. Its Responsible SEGRO Framework focuses on three long-term priorities where the company believes it can make the greatest impact: Championing Low-Carbon Growth, Investing in Local Communities and Environments and Nurturing Talent.

Through the Investing in Local Communities and Environment pillar of the framework, local people in Northampton are benefitting from investment in skills, employment, environmental and economic programmes, as part of a newly launched Community Investment Plan.

The plan is being carried out in partnership with local charity partners such as Track NN and Groundwork Northamptonshire, as well as the main construction partner, Winvic Construction.

A range of projects will be undertaken with the aim of achieving the following outcomes by the end of 2025:

  • 1,200 young people will be engaged through SEGRO’s Schools Work Programme
  • 6 outdoor spaces will be reinvigorated to improve biodiversity and support community wellbeing
  • 300 unemployed people will participate in bespoke skills, and training programmes

The Northampton Community Investment Plan is a key element of the company’s Responsible SEGRO commitments to boost skills, training and employment, as well as enhancing the local environment and biodiversity in the communities where it operates across the UK and Continental Europe. This is one of ten plans being launched in 2022.

Community Liaison Group

To help keep local parishes and stakeholders updated about the construction of SEGRO Logistics Park Northampton (SLPN), SEGRO has established a Community Liaison Group (CLG) as a way of managing and sharing information relating to the development.

The CLG aims to provide a transparent and representative link between SEGRO, the community and other local stakeholders, ensuring the local community is well informed and its voice listened to throughout the construction of SLPN.

Attendees include representatives from:

  • Roade Parish Council
  • Blisworth Parish Council
  • Milton Malsor Parish Council
  • Collingtree Parish Council
  • South Northamptonshire Council
  • Northampton Borough Council
  • Northamptonshire Highways

If you have any questions, please contact your local parish council who can put you in touch with your CLG representative or get in touch with us directly.
