An event due to be held by SCE later this month to help drive sustainability across Shropshire’s construction industry has been cancelled.

The Waste and Resource Efficiency seminar was due to be held on March 17, at Telford College in Wellington.

However, the organisation has taken a decision to cancel the event due to the continued circumstances surrounding Coronavirus. Instead the presentations due to be made at the event will be recorded and made available on-line in the coming weeks.

SCE Chairman Paul Moran said: “There are a number of speakers who have had to pull out of this event because of restrictions placed on them by their employers not to attend external meetings or events. We are also experiencing a lack of interest in the event due to the current circumstances and we have therefore decided to cancel.

“It’s difficult to predict the scale and impact of this virus on our communities but we feel this is the right action to take at this moment in time. We now plan to record the event presentations and make them available online to those who have an interest in improving the sustainability of their business.”
