Business recovery

We are working with retailers and small independent shops across the District to safely reopen and welcome people back into town and village centres. 

The government has produced updated guidance for all business who are thinking of re-opening on how you can work safely. Guidance on reopening is also available in the Better Business for All Covid-19 toolkit.

If your business will have challenges, for example, queuing on narrow pavements, or if you have any ideas for how we can support the reopening of our town centres email Regeneration@fdean.gov.uk.

We are ordering a selection of stickers to help guide people safely through business premises.  If you would like some email us Regeneration@fdean.gov.uk.

We have produced a checklist before you re-open your business to make sure that you are able to do so safely.

We have produced a number of signage posters for you to download and print to use in your business.
