Council leader Nancy Platts on making sure we do our best to restart lives and the local economy safely. We want to protect residents and the people who work in Brighton & Hove, and help ensure that when shops and business reopen, they stay open and flourish.
Council leader Nancy Platts sets out how the council is supporting small businesses during the pandemic and urges those eligible for the small business grants who have not yet made contact to get in touch.
A range of support measures are in place to help small businesses survive the Coronovirus crisis and we have trained additional staff to help us process all funding the government has made available, as quickly as possible.
Even if you've booked holiday accommodation, you should not travel until government restrictions have been lifted. Our Trading Standards team is warning hotels and holiday lets they need to remain closed until further notice.
The council has signed up to the Unite the Union Construction Charter. The Charter ensures that working conditions for employees on construction projects under council control meet the highest standards.
