Angus Council has launched an electronic survey to find out how it can help local businesses grow and prosper in the future.

The authority’s economic development team has rolled out the survey to all businesses it has an email address for and in additions companies are invited to open sessions in Arbroath next month.

Angus Council’s development and enterprise convener Councillor Mairi Evans said: “We are really keen to find out more about business needs and how the council can best support them. It’s been a tough few years for business and the economic climate is still very challenging so we want to make sure that what we’re offering local businesses meets their needs, from initial contact to current and future support for business growth.

“I urge local companies to complete the short survey or take the opportunity to come along to one of the open sessions and talk to the economic development team. The findings from this comprehensive exercise will help inform future business support services and make sure they address the needs of our local companies.”

The open session will take place from 6.30 p.m. on Thursday, May 1, in the Isla Building, Dundee and Angus College, Keptie Road.

The deadline for the completion of the electronic survey is Tuesday, May 6, if you have not received one contact or call 08452 777778.
