One of my clients in Edinburgh is registered with Entrust, a government body that deals with landfill sites. The organisation doesn't have or use any such sites but probably did years ago. It doesn't cost anything and all we have to do is send in a "nil" return each year. Perhaps membership may be useful in the future.
Anyway, today we received the annual return together with a letter that says:
I write to you that following a strategic review of its operations, ENTRUST's Board has decided to relocate its offices from Acre House, Sale to Leamington Spa. In reaching this decision, the Board has considered the requirement for ENTRUST to more effectively serve the needs of its stakeholders and has taken into consideration a number of important factors, including:But they're now less centrally located in the United Kingdom. The mid-point of the island of Great Britain is around Kendal in Cumbria. Including the offshore islands it's in Dumfriesshire. In Sale they were already in the South, now even more so. Private companies can locate wherever they want, but government organisations shouldn't be concentrated in the expensive southeast. No wonder folk up here vote SNP.
Allowing ENTRUST to be more centrally located in the United Kingdom to provide an enhanced service to its stakeholders
