A STUDY that should help local businesses grow in the next few years is being led by Stroud District Council.
It aims to assess the local economy, find out what future needs businesses have, particularly for premises and what barriers there are to their growth. It will be carried by Aecom and BE Group on the council's behalf.
Around 400 firms in the district – about 10 per cent of the total –have already been contacted. Other businesses wanting to express their views can fill in the survey that can be accessed at www.begroup.uk.com following the link on the home page.
