Firms asked how busi­ness is go­ing

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Kent Business Update -

A RE­VIEW of land in Shep­way is un­der­way by the district coun­cil to help the area weather the eco­nomic cri­sis.

A ques­tion­naire is be­ing sent to busi­nesses across the district to find out more about their plans.

As well as fo­cus­ing on land and premises, it will be an op­por­tu­nity for firms to com­ment on other fac­tors af­fect­ing their busi­ness.

The find­ings will also go into the Lo­cal De­vel­op­ment Frame­work, the suc­ces­sor to the Lo­cal Plan, which will guide fu­ture plan­ning de­ci­sions about the amount and type of de­vel­op­ment to take place lo­cally, es­pe­cially the bal­ance be­tween jobs and hous­ing.

For more in­for­ma­tion please con­tact Keith Grim­ley, Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Of­fi­cer on 01303 853648.
