Supporting business and encouraging enterprise

We want to support stable levels of economic growth and employment by creating and maintaining an attractive and vibrant business environment in the borough.


Business and Enterprise

The Royal Borough's economy is characterised by the number of small and unique businesses, with over three quarters of businesses employing fewer than five employees and only 2 per cent employing more than 50. However, we are also home to some flagship business brands and renowned commercial centres.

These pages include information on doing business in the borough and where to find help to grow and succeed.
