Fife Council is committed to recovery and bringing back a strong economy following the coronavirus lockdown. The role of businesses is crucial to the future success of Fife towns.
We have supported many businesses over lock down with Government financial support packages and with ongoing fixed property-related costs. We have also spoken to many businesses about how they could safely operate takeaway services or continue to manufacture or sell essential goods through social distancing and hygiene practices. For information on support for businesses please visit www.fife.gov.uk/coronavirus-business
We are developing and implementing recovery plans to help address the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on towns and local shopping centres across Fife. A vital part of this planning is to support our local businesses as our town centres begin to re-open.
Social distancing support
To prepare for the increase in footfall we are putting place signage and markings to help with queuing and social distancing on our footpaths and precincts in Fife. The council will be monitoring the situation as shoppers and visitors return to each town centre to provide the right level of support to make sure everyone is kept safe.
