Richmondshire District Council

We have a dedicated business and community team working to support businesses across the district.

Our economic development action plan has three main priorities:

  • Enabling opportunities for growth: Ensuring that we and our partners are doing all we can to stimulate growth and promote the area as a place for businesses. 
  • Supporting local businesses and tourism: Ensuring that the businesses in the district, small scale and within the tourism and service sectors, can thrive and grow.
  • Improving connectivity: Ensuring good connectivity in terms of transport as well as digitally to improve links between businesses, customers and the workforce.
