Business Regulatory Support

Business Regulatory Support is the local programme for the nationwide Better Business for All scheme. It is a business-focused project led by the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) in partnership with Cornwall Council.

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 grow
  • 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.
