Tewkesbury Borough Council – Reopening retail businesses

As many non-essential retail stores prepare to open their doors next week, Tewkesbury Borough Council is on hand to support local businesses with preparations to reopen safely.

Following the government’s announcement that all retail stores can reopen on Monday 15 June, the council’s environmental health officers and the business Growth Hub are providing tailored advice and support to help businesses meet their Covid-19 responsibilities.

The council would like to hear from owners of businesses in the borough who are preparing to reopen next week. Those who complete this short survey will be helping council officers to better understand which businesses are reopening and what they need, so that they can be offered tailored advice.

Councillor Rob Bird, leader of Tewkesbury Borough Council said: “We want to support business owners in their efforts to reopen in a way that helps keep employees and customers as safe as is practically possible. What we’re doing in time for 15 June is just the beginning – we will continue to work with businesses to assess the measures they put in place and will provide the support and advice needed, with the aim of getting our local economy moving again safely.”
