Extended rent freeze to help businesses

It is so important that during these hard financial times we do everything we can to help our business community in Staffordshire stay afloat. Im pleased to say that without any hesitation the whole cabinet agreed today to extend the rent freeze for companies at the council’s 13 business centres for another year.

Businesses at Lymedale, Silverdale and Newcastle Under Lyme, Cannock, Burton, Stafford and Uttoxeter will continue to benefit from the employer friendly measure which forms part of our wider recession action package.

Small and medium size companies’ employ 72% of the workforce in Staffordshire – and probably produce way over 50% of the counties total economic output. They are the unsung heroes of our economy!
