Council offers support and advice to local businesses

COUNCIL is offering new support and advice to businesses preparing to reopen.

Easing of restrictions will see some businesses, such as close contact services, reopen this Friday with further businesses, like retail and outdoor hospitality, scheduled to reopen on Friday, April 30.

Kevin O’Connor, council’s head of Business, said, “This is a very significant and important few weeks for many of our local businesses and as a council we want to reassure those businesses that we continue to be here to help and assist them.

“We have been proactive throughout the Covid-19 pandemic in supporting our local businesses through our Shop Local campaigns, engaging through our City and Town Centre Stakeholder group and providing advice in navigating the challenges the past year has presented for all businesses who have shown incredible resilience, determination and strength.

“Council officers will continue to be available for local businesses as we enter this next positive step in seeing businesses, and our city and town centres, thriving again and I would strongly encourage any business owners with questions or concerns to get in contact.”
