Response to the Roadmap

 

The Prime Minister’s Roadmap promotes a careful and considered reopening, which avoids businesses having to close their doors once again. With that in mind we fully support a reopening plan that is incremental, but irreversible.

Our businesses are ready and waiting to welcome their customers back.

We’ll now wait with bated breath to find out what financial measures will be in place to support our businesses until 12th April. With the budget in a matter of days, we look to the Chancellor to continue providing vital working capital by continuing the current business rates relief until fundamental reform can be achieved. We also urge the Treasury to introduce relief for empty properties to incentivise investment and encourage a new mix of businesses to open as part of Penrith’s recovery.
