GBC plans to help local businesses and retailers to bounce back

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch in Nottinghamshire

Gedling Borough Council is beginning work on an economic bounce-back plan to support local businesses and the wider economy.

The council is creating two new roles to support local small businesses and retailers with general business advice and guidance, and to enable them to reopen in a way that is safe for them and for the public.

Two temporary advisor roles, one for small businesses and one for retail businesses, will be created to offer direct guidance and advice for businesses about what help they can access to assist their business as well as in response to the coronavirus. They will be able to provide important information about the government’s recovery strategy as well as signposting business owners to the different funding opportunities and organisations available to help them.

The new roles are part of the council’s larger economic development strategy to help businesses bounce back, whilst also focusing on promoting the local economy to residents. As well as providing tailored advice to help local businesses reopen, the council’s Economic Development Team are also working on ways that residents can ‘rediscover’ their local shops and high streets.

As part of the plan, Gedling Borough Council will continue work on revitalising the borough’s town centres, in both Arnold and other communities, which will support the local economy. They are looking at ways to improve the infrastructure in the borough for example, improving Wi-Fi, creating more electric car points and improving the Arnold Market Place, which will undergo a multi-million pound transformation.

The government’s guidance on how retailers can get ‘covid secure’ has now been published and the council will be aiming to provide support on the logistics of the requirements for shops, retailers and market stall holders so they can open with the confidence that they are providing a safe place for people to visit.
