Both levels of government have responsibilities touched by these projects including environment, employment, education, law and order, but the biggest issue of all is to mitigate climate change.
Governments also provide funding opportunities for employment, education, community welfare, health, social enterprise as well as environment.
Some workers in these projects may progress to starting their own businesses and access government services for these.
Local Members could be called on to provide letters of support for projects seeking funding. Some will be proactive and seek out funding for their local community.
We would urge all levels of government to work together, participate in the network, and take up opportunities as the project evolves.
