On Wednesday I met with Claire Ruskin (Cambridge Network) Michael Mealing (FSB), Chris Parkhouse (IoD) and John Bridge (Chamber) as part of my ambition to make sure the County Council is ‘open for business’ and alert to the issues business representative organisations are hearing from their Members.
We had a productive discussion with both offers of help and challenge in equal measures. It was pleasing to see that the Local Enterprise Parnership (LEP) was the first item for discussion. All of us are committed to working to make the LEP a success.
I took the action to see how the County Council can help business more.
