Message from Braintree District Council:
We are currently undergoing a review of our business engagement activities under the officer direction of our new Business Engagement officer, Danielle Putt and I am very keen to build on previous initiatives, including the recent promotion of rural enterprise, undertaken by Cllr Frankie Ricci and Cllr Mrs Wendy Scattergood in their respective years as Chairman of Braintree D.C.
In November 2017 we adopted out Braintree District Plan for Growth and I am very pleased to say that as an authority, we have a greater understanding than we have ever had, of the sectors in the District economy that will create jobs in a growing area.
I am conscious we have not spoken to everyone and that there are many resilient and innovative companies in more remote areas that we have not reached. I am writing to ask for colleagues help in identifying businesses in your locality that would potentially welcome a visit from Braintree District Council. Cllr Kevin Bowers, Danielle Putt and myself will be allocating days as we head in to Spring for visits. I would be delighted if you were not only able to suggest visits but also join us on these visits if convenient.
The visits would cover introductions to the businesses and communicating the offers of business support and engagement within the District.
If you are able to suggest possible visits, please could you contact Danielle: firstname.lastname@example.org mailto: email@example.com or tel: 01376 552525 ext 2585.
We aim to commence visits from mid-march onwards, so any suggestions of businesses we should visit and your availability will be most helpful.
We look forward to hearing from you and thank you very much in advance for your support with this.
Cllr Tom Cunningham
Cabinet Member for Economic Development.
