Businesses encouraged to take part in council survey

Businesses in the district are being asked to take part in a survey run by Tendring District Council (TDC) to help shape an inform the council’s Business Support Service.

As part of the council’s Tendring4Growth initiative, plans are being prepared to commission a Business Support Service – with funding already agreed by TDC’s Cabinet in January this year.

TDC’s Economic Growth Service had planned to consult firms earlier this year on what they would like to see included in the service, but the work was put on hold due to Covid-19.

Now businesses’ views are being sought on what support they would like included in a tailored Business Support Service, including support to help businesses recover from the impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Mary Newton, TDC Cabinet Member for Business and Economic Growth, said the council wanted to play its part in the economic recovery of the district.

“We want to make sure that our new service is closely aligned with the needs and requirements of local businesses, but to do that we need to know what help you need,” Cllr Newton said.

“With this in mind we want to know what support you have been able to access during lockdown, and looking ahead to the future what type of support you would find most useful to help your company recover and grow.

“The survey only takes ten minutes but your ideas will really help us to help you.”

The survey will close at 12 noon on Friday 3 July, 2020.

Tendring4Growth is part of the council’s Corporate Plan, an initiative to bring together partners, businesses and communities to ensure economic growth is sustained and benefits everyone living and working in Tendring; and also an ethos which puts businesses and growth at the centre of everything the council does.
