Help us to help you! That’s the message to businesses across Tendring in an effort to provide them with better support.
Tendring District Council’s (TDC) Regeneration Team is sending out a short survey to get a better understanding of companies’ needs and aspirations.
Do they find business bulletins and newsletters useful; what events would they like to see arranged in the future and what is of interest to them?
Zoe Fairley, TDC’s Cabinet Member for Investment and Growth, said it is all very well the Council doing what it believes the business sector wants.
“More importantly though, we want to know what ticks their boxes and what type of material they want to receive and what type of events they would attend,” she said.
“We want to use the resources we have to work closely with the business community in Tendring – and to do that we need a bit of feedback from them.
“It is all about gaining a better understanding of where they are coming from and just how we can be a positive help to them.”
Companies and sole traders should have already received two business bulletins and the first Tendring Business Talk newsletter from the Council’s Regeneration Team.
A range of events have been held in recent months throughout the District, including ‘drop ins' and business surgeries.
“We would welcome their views and comments and want their ideas on if we should continue with these - as well as any topics they'd be interested to see covered,” added Cllr Fairley.
“Therefore please complete the very simple questionnaire so we can make sure we are providing the support and assistance needed for Tendring businesses to further prosper and grow.”
The questionnaire is split into two sections - one regarding recent communication and the second in relation to possible events – and should not take more than a few minutes to complete.
