UPGRADING THE ESTATES In line with our net zero carbon commitment to reduce operational emissions, we have recently completed the installation of solar on one unit. Across the estates we are aiming to improve the energy efficiency of units and we directly control the electricity supply at Mill Place Trading Estate, meaning we can ensure it is renewably sourced. We have started our programme of refurbishment upgrades across the estates and have installed new signage, LED lighting, repaired roads and enhanced security though mobile patrols, security barriers and CCTV. We have met in person with all of our occupiers and delivered welcome packs, ensuring everyone has a direct point of contact with us.
