What to expect

Starting a new business can be an exciting but daunting prospect, so we would like to make your journey as smooth as possible by offering a more personal service.  With any business, good preparation is key to ensuring success.

When you call us, we will ask you some questions about your business and talk you through the first steps to make sure you have all the information you need on the licensing and registration laws appropriate to your business.

We may signpost you to other agencies that offer useful advice and information.

We will also look for other areas where we may be able to help you, such as training courses and advice on any enterprise grants, plus any other relevant support packages that may be available to you.  

This is also an opportunity to ask questions if there is anything you are unsure about.   

So, whether you are a sole trader or an existing business looking to relocate to this district, we are here to help you take those first steps into business.

The Business Regulatory Support Hub is open:

 Monday - Friday, 9am to 5pm on 0345 034 8691
