SUPPORT AND ADVICE TO BUSINESSES IN
THE WELWYN HATFIELD AREA

Is your business based in Welwyn Hatfield? If so, we need your views!

 

Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council is committed to supporting the needs of businesses in the area.  We have invested in a dedicated Economic Development service and have partnered with local businesses to form the Welwyn Hatfield Business Forum.

The Forum provides an opportunity for local businesses to work with the council and be part of a partnership to promote the economic growth of the borough.

We want the Forum to benefit your business.  To help us achieve this aim, we need to know more about your business and its needs.

We will use the information gathered to feed back to the council who will produce an action plan to help achieve an environment in Welwyn Hatfield in which businesses can thrive.

The survey takes less than five minutes to complete.  All answers you provide will be kept in the strictest confidence.

Click here to take the survey.

We aim to run an event early in 2019 which we hope you will attend where we will share the findings of the survey.  We will be in touch nearer the time with details.

 

Better Business for All (BBFA)

We recognise that the Regulations your business must comply with are many, varied and often complex.

To give your business the best chance of succeeding and to ensure a level playing field, local Regulators, led by your council, are working in partnership with business organisations such as the Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership, Hertfordshire Growth Hub, FSB, Chambers of Commerce and Welwyn and Hatfield Borough Council to improve our services to you.

Click here to find out more how your regulators in Hertfordshire are working together to support Business and Enterprise and to access free advice.

To keep up to date with the campaign and to receive updates on legislation affecting your Business, follow BBFA on Twitter @BbfaHerts.

You can also contact us by email at bbfa@hertfordshire.gov.uk.

Get Better Connected

The Government has made a commitment to provide every home and business in the UK with access to a basic broadband service so that browsing the web and keeping in touch with families and friends is easier.

A subsidised broadband installation is now available if you cannot access an affordable broadband service with a speed of at least 2 Mb per second. Up to £350 is available.

You can check what broadband services are already available to you using the GoSuperfast checker and what your current broadband speed is, using the ADSL availability checker.

If, after making these checks, you believe your speed is less than 2 Mb per second and you have no other options available then click here to find out how to apply for help.

Taking out a broadband service under this scheme will not prevent your premises from being considered for superfast broadband in the future.

If you require assistance please telephone 0207 211 6468.
