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
Business support survey
We are developing 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.
We’d like to hear about your plans and the support that you need to re-open and trade both safely and successfully as the lockdown eases. This will help us to manage our town centres effectively. Recovering from Covid-19 will challenge different businesses in different ways and we want to do all we can to help. Please take the short survey today: www.fife.gov.uk/tc-recovery-survey
The survey closes on 6 July.
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.
