At West Dorset Leisure Holidays we take the protection of the environment very seriously and believe it’s our duty to ensure everyone involved with the company is committed to a policy of environmental protection and Going Green and therefore must accept responsibility in providing the best environmental practice.
Management of this policy is being achieved by:
- The holiday parks are located in environmentally sensitive areas, any planning or park development will be done with sustainability and protection as a priority.
- Encouraging all caravan holiday home owners and residents in hire accommodation and touring units to participate in environmental protection, recycling waste in the designated bins and following the park rules.
- Training is given to all members of staff to ensure environmental protection methods are understood and improving overall customer care.
- Waste management and recycling is compulsory and the company is committed to reducing water, energy, material consumption and waste generation through the involvement of guests and staff.
