City launches restart and recovery questionnaire

Derby City Council is asking thousands of Derby businesses how the Coronavirus pandemic is impacting their operations and what help they need to recover.

The study will help the city shape its plans to kick-start the local economy post-lockdown and tailor the support it can offer to companies.

Councillor Matthew Holmes, Deputy Leader of Derby City Council, commented: "We want to understand how confident companies are of a recovery or whether they fear they will have to make redundancies. We want to understand how individual sectors are being affected and how firms are having to modify their operations and even their product offerings to cope. And, crucially, we want to know which measures they would find most beneficial as they re-start and revive their businesses."

The survey will take around 15 minutes to complete and data collected will guide the work of the Economic Recovery Task Force, a partnership which is harnessing expertise from the public and private sectors in the city.
