Westminster City Council has launched the next stage of its ongoing survey into the needs of businesses throughout the city.

For the past year, the council’s Business Unit has been conducting an in-depth survey into Westminster’s businesses, asking questions designed to help shape the Business Unit’s approach to supporting the recovery of all sectors of the business community in the city.

Councillor Matthew Green, Cabinet Member for Business, Licensing and Planning, said:

With Westminster once again fully reopened and footfall gradually returning to our retail and hospitality centres, it’s vitally important that we get a clear picture of how you and your business are faring, along with the types of actions you need to see taken to further support your recovery.

Previous stages of the ongoing survey put a strong focus on COVID-related actions. For this next stage, we are asking more wide-reaching questions on issues such as recruitment, skill shortages, infrastructure and, with COP26 and the journey towards a zero carbon future uppermost in everybody’s minds, reducing carbon emissions across the business sector.

The ten-minute survey is part of a larger, ongoing operation to build a clear picture of the Westminster business community. It is therefore vital that as many businesses take part in as possible to make sure the council is able to provide the best support to this sector as possible.
