CCBC pledges ongoing support for business

Caerphilly county borough council will continue to support the local business community following the announcement of a new financial package by Welsh Government.

Earlier this week, First Minister Mark Drakeford unveiled plans for further restrictions for pubs, restaurants and other hospitality and indoor leisure businesses. He also announced that additional grants are being provided to help these businesses cope.

Welsh Government is still working on the fine detail of the arrangements and as soon as these are announced, the council will act quickly to administer the grants.

Deputy Leader of council, Cllr Sean Morgan said, “We are awaiting further details about these schemes, but I want to assure local businesses that we will act quickly as soon as we get the green light from Welsh Government. We anticipate that some of the payment process will be automated, however, some businesses will need to undertake a registration process to apply for the funds.”

“Our Finance and Business Support teams have been working extremely hard over recent months to administer the existing grants and they will continue to provide focussed support throughout this difficult time,” he added.

Further information about the support on offer for businesses can be found on the CCBC website.
