Richmondshire businesses asked about needs

Richmondshire businesses are being asked about their future needs and aspirations.

As part of the review of the local plan the district council is surveying all businesses in the district to gain an understanding of their needs, aspirations and requirements.

It is one of a number of studies to inform future strategies and adopted policies – this one will be used on the future strategy for economic growth, helping to plan for future employment needs and identify new and existing sites for employment.

It will also help to ensure adequate infrastructure is in place to support businesses and inform whether any support can be given in terms of grant funding.

The survey is available at

Hard copies are available from Richmond, Leyburn, Colburn, Hawes and Reeth community offices.

The deadline for the survey to be completed is the March 15.
