Information on support and advice for businesses

The Council is here to help businesses as the UK Government allows retail business to reopen

From 15 June 2020, UK Government intends to allow all retailers, ranging from shops selling clothes, shoes, toys, furniture, books, and electronics, plus tailors, auction houses, photography studios, and indoor markets, if the Government's five tests are met and they follow the COVID-19 secure guidelines.

You can find more information and advise on our business recovery page.

If you are concerned about any planning, licensing, hygiene or safety requirements which you may need to satisfy send us your enquiry.
