We are working with the TDA to develop an action plan for Torbay’s economic recovery. Together we have been seeking input from the Torbay Business Forum, Torquay Chamber of Commerce, Paignton Chamber of Commerce and Brixham Chamber of Commerce.
We are also working with partners across the region, such as our neighbouring councils and the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership to ensure that the region as a whole gets the support it needs – both now and in the future.
We are preparing to release payments to all businesses to cover the period 16 February to 31 March. This payment covers 44 days and ranges from £1,467 to £3,300 depending on your circumstances.
