Message from your Council Leaders

SHDC and WDBC Leaders

As we now face further national restrictions, we would like to take a moment to send our heart-felt thanks out to you all.

Over the last few months you have all worked tirelessly, adapting and changing how you operate to abide by the COVID secure regulations.

The next 4 weeks present you with new challenges and for many we know this will be an extremely difficult time.

Please bear with us as we unpack the governments latest raft of grants and support.  We will do what we can to react quickly and get the support to you.

Stay Safe, stay strong and together we will get through this

Cllr Judy Pearce and Cllr Neil Jory

Leader of SHDC and Leader of WDBC

We are getting lots of information from central government about the new grant available to businesses.  

When we have worked through all of the details and can tell you more about the grant, we will post the information on our websites. 

Please can we ask you not to call our offices at the moment, as we are busy setting up the scheme. We will send you a further email bulletin like this, when the scheme is available, thank you.
