Local Lib Dem and Leader of the Liberal Democrats on Tonbridge and Malling Council, Councillor Anita Oakley has launched a survey local small businesses in Tonbridge and Malling asking them how she can help them grow and take on more staff.
Commenting, Cllr Anita Oakley said, “Local business owners have had a tough battle in recent years but we know there’s much more to do to ensure long term, stable growth.
“I want to hear from businesses across Tonbridge and Malling on what I can do as their local Councillor and also what the Lib Dems can do to help keep the economy growing.
“Whilst many businesses here in Tonbridge and Malling are seeing growth, I feel there is much more our council and government could be doing to help the recovery and making sure that it is a fair recovery for everyone.
“That is why I am asking you to spend just a few minutes completing this short survey. The answers you give will help us focus even more on the areas of real concern to small business owners and managers. Together we can make sure the Government takes the action that is needed to help small businesses.
Cllr Anita Oakley added, “I will be using the results of this survey to put pressure on Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council to do more to support local businesses and take the strong steps necessary to keep Britain’s businesses on their feet.”
