Redbridge Business Forum

Closed 15 Nov 2021

Opened 8 Sep 2021


During the pandemic, the Council has supported businesses through the distribution of Government and discretionary grants, has scaled up its business support offer and is developing a comprehensive business recovery programme. 

The Council wants to better respond to the needs of businesses, and work together with the business community to rebuild our local economy, encourage and support businesses to thrive, create jobs and vibrant and healthy High Streets.

The Council’s working relationship with business networks including the two BID companies and the Chamber of Commerce, as well as local partnerships such as South Woodford Business Partnership has been further developed, and has been essential to a partnership approach to response and recovery.

The Council wants to build on this relationship and expand its dialogue and communication with businesses by establishing a borough wide Business Forum. This will provide an opportunity for business owners, and business leaders to connect with each other and to engage with the Council. 

The Business Forum will also give businesses an opportunity to be more directly involved in borough priorities, plans and development. 

If you would like to join the Business Forum, and receive further information please complete this short questionnaire. It will take 5 minutes to complete.
