Council opens countrys first dedicated business Growth Hub image

Tewkesbury Borough Council is claiming a first for a new 'growth hub' where local business people can work, meet and get access to important resources.

The hub is based in the town's public services centre so that businesses can access council services including regulatory, planning and environmental health advice.

The council says it will promote entrepreneurship, innovation and business growth in the area by offering support to businesses of all types.

It forms part of the Gloucestershire Growth Hub network, supporting local enterprises to expand and create jobs.

At the official opening council leader Rob Bird said: 'The Tewkesbury Growth Hub is a major boost for local businesses of all types and sizes, and I encourage everyone to make full use of the help, advice, resources and facilities available.

'It fulfils two key council objectives: practical support for business growth and prosperity and the one-stop customer service experience, by coordinating our services to businesses through one contact point.'
