BUSINESSES across Hambleton are being asked how the coronavirus pandemic has – and is -affecting them.

The district council is looking to create a picture of how covid-19 has affected the region – and how future help can be directed to local companies.

It is asking businesses to complete a short survey seeking information on operational impacts, how they have adapted to the pandemic and if the business has changed or continued in the same form.

Councillor Mark Robson, leader of Hambleton District Council, said: “We are currently working on an Economic Recovery Plan and this input direct from business will be very helpful in steering our support in the future,” said
