Business ratepayers' breakfast

Our business ratepayers’ breakfast is going online. This important annual business networking meeting will take place via ZOOM on Wednesday 20 January between 8am and 9.30am. The focus will be on how we are helping businesses and our town centres to survive the impact of COVID-19 and grow in 2021. Hear what grants and support are available to help your business.

Presentations include updates on business rates for the new financial year, the council’s budget and our priorities for economic recovery and growth.



We are aware of how difficult these times are for many and encourage you to attend and maintain dialogue with us and let us know how we can support you. You know, if we can, we will!  It will be through effectively working and supporting each other that we will get through this.

Please make a note in your diary and join us on the day. We’re very sorry that our usual delicious breakfast won’t be available this time, but you’re welcome to bring your own.

Register your attendance for the online Business Ratepayers' event. There is an opportunity for you to submit a question before the event.


Cllr. Richard Morris.

Deputy Leader and portfolio holder for economic growth and tourism.
