The Project enjoys strong community support. As part of the planned development APC is committed to supporting jobs, economic development and building capability in local communities. The Company has always been committed to making real substantive change to the Laverton community through our close working relationship with the Shire and the township. The Company has extended this endeavour by pledging jobs through the Wirrpanda Foundation's excellent and sector leading programs that encompass work skills, on the job mentoring and on-going employment support for Indigenous new hires. In 2020, APC looks forward to developing the relationship into one delivering real, productive outcomes for the Company, the Wirrpanda Foundation and most importantly, the local and regional people of Laverton.

The LSOP will provide opportunities for a drive-in/drive-out workforce from Laverton and surrounding communities. In addition to the significant regional benefit the LSOP will deliver, there are tangible benefits that will accrue to the Western Australian agricultural industry with the creation of a local supply of this premium fertiliser. The LSOP also represents a brand new export industry for WA.
