Local economy views sorted from Lichfield Businesses
Lichfield District Council are encouraging local businesses to give their views and opinions to help guide future support plans.
The council are looking for businesses of all sizes and from all sectors across the district to take part in an online survey to provide a health check on the local economy.
The purpose of the survey is to investigate the types of support businesses are looking for and what their future commercial property demands might be.
The results of the survey will enable the council and its partners to understand what the future demand for business support is likely to be.
Along side this it will also enable them to understand the property requirements and the initial impact of major economic shifts such as Brexit and the pandemic.
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 Lichfield business survey is online now and responses are due to be in by the 7th February 2022.
