Business Regulatory Support
Better Business for All is a business-focused project led by the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). It is working with the business community to improve how regulatory services are delivered in Cornwall.
- To show how working with local
regulators can save time and money, improve competitiveness and help businesses
- Encourage more businesses in Cornwall
to seek advice from local regulators by highlighting the benefits of regulation
to business, without fear of enforcement activity
- Ensure that regulatory staff have a
better understand of how businesses operate and the pressures they face
Better Businesses for All can now access the new Business Regulatory
Support service through the Cornwall
and Isles of Scilly Growth Hub. Delivered through
Better Business for All, this new Cornwall Council services gives
businesses a single point of contact for advice on regulations, from food hygiene
and licensing to planning and fire safety.
Better Business for All is part of a national government initiative to reduce the regulatory burden on business. It is endorsed by Regulatory Delivery, which is part of the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.
The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly LEP was selected as one of the 11 early adopters of the scheme and successfully bid for grant funding to get the project off the ground.
Cornwall's Better Business for All (BBfA) programme was recognised nationally when it won the Partnership Award at the Government’s inaugural BBFA Awards in March 2016.
