Local businesses encouraged to help guide future support plans

We are looking for businesses of all sizes and sectors across the district to take part in an online survey and provide a health check on the local economy, investigate what type of support businesses are looking for what their future commercial property demands might be. 

The results of the survey will enable the council and its partners understand what the future demand for business support is likely to be, what local commercial property requirements are going to be, and about the initial impact of major economic events such as the pandemic and Brexit.

Councillor Iain Eadie, Cabinet Member for Economic Development, said: 

“As a council we have set aside money to help our local businesses.  We want to hear from them about what support we can give them now and in the future to help them thrive and grow.

“I’d ask all businesses to come forward and take part in the survey to help us build a better picture of what our local economy looks like just now and what businesses see their challenges are going to be in the future”.

The online survey is open for responses until 7 February 2022.
