A new website has been launched to help promote economic development and business growth in Fenland.

Called Fenland for Business, it has been developed jointly by Fenland District Council and its economic development partner, Opportunity Peterborough.

It is designed to support new entrepreneurs looking to start a business, help existing local firms to grow and attract new investors in to the district.

Councillor Ralph Butcher, the council’s Cabinet member responsible for growth, said: “We are looking to do all we can to boost our local economy and this new website will play a key part in that.

“It showcases Fenland’s strengths as a great business destination and aims to help businesses grow, both individually and collectively.

“It provides a wealth of information and detailed guidance on every aspect of business development, whether you are already operating in Fenland or considering moving here.

“It includes advice on everything from where start-ups should look to secure finance and grants to how existing businesses can go about developing new markets. It will also give details about forthcoming business events across the district.
