Cornish businesses urged to help shape the future of regulation

Reducing the regulatory burden on business is a priority for the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). That's why the LEP has set up a new project between businesses and regulators in Cornwall called Better Business for All. By working together it will improve how regulatory services are delivered and remove some of the barriers to business growth – both real and perceived – that regulation presents. It will save you time and money, and make it quicker and easier for you to comply with the law. Regulation takes many forms. It includes trading standards, environmental health, animal health, licensing, planning and fire and community safety. But to help develop a new approach to regulation in Cornwall we need your help. Tell us about your experiences of regulation and how you think we can make the process quicker and easier for you. By taking five minutes to give us your honest feedback you will be helping shape the future of regulation in Cornwall. Thank you. Click here to give us your feedback.

Higher Newham Questionnaire

In the creation of these plans for Higher Newham we've been mindful of the importance of accessible green space, the struggles faced by farming in Cornwall and the value of great local food. We also understand Cornwall's need for good quality affordable homes and better job prospects.

Our plans are about Cornwall's future: Homes, Skills, the Natural Environment. We think we have come up with an idea that could not only lead the way in sustainable development nationally, but which will respect and enhance the local environment as well as providing educational opportunities in food and farming.

For Higher Newham Farm and Village to really work we need you to tell us what you think.

Please take 10 minutes to fill in our questionnaire. Click here:
