Jobs to be created in Kent if energy centre approved

Hundreds of green jobs, possibly including graduate vacancies, could be created in Kent if plans for a green energy centre are approved.

The development, which is proposed for a site in Richborough, near Sandwich, will include a recycling centre, a 'sludge plant' and a plastic processing yard, according to the This is Kent website.

Before the centre opens, hundred of jobs will be created in the construction industry, while there will be 60 green job vacancies opening once the energy park gets up and running.

Gary Lever, the development director for BFL Management, who commissioned the plan, told the news provider that he hopes the public will support the building.

"At this stage we are very keen to ensure our plans and aspirations for the site are drawn up in conjunction with Kent County Council and the local authorities, Thanet and Dover, as well as local residents and interest groups," he said.

Last month, the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering said it is "vital" that the government continues to show commitment to environmentally-friendly schemes such as the green investment bank.
