Amazon jobs boost will have ‘real impact’, says councilOct 25, 2014
Cllr Nigel Young (pictured), executive member for business and regeneration, said: “It is fantastic news that more jobs are being created in the area which could have real impact for local people seeking work.
“The council actively seeks to encourage economical development and growth in our area and ongoing improvements to the region’s road infrastructure, such as the dualling of the A421, make it very desirable for big employers like Amazon to invest in the area and run their businesses here.”
The announcement comes as employment rates for the area hit 77.4% which is 5% higher than the national average.
Amazon is just one of several large employers in Central Bedfordshire with Center Parcs creating 1,500 jobs over the last year alone.
