Shape the future of regulation


Cornwall’s businesses are being urged to help shape the future of regulation by feeding back on their best and worst experiences, and suggesting the one thing they would change about regulation if they had the opportunity.

Reducing the regulatory burden on business is a priority for the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

Consequently, it has set up a new project between businesses and regulatory services at Cornwall Council called Better Business for All.

It aims to take a business-led approach to improving regulation and show how working with regulators can save businesses time and money, improve competitiveness and help them grow.

To help develop the programme, businesses across Cornwall are now being urged to share their experiences of regulation through a short questionnaire.

The results will help inform a range of activity to make it easier for businesses to access guidance and advice from Cornwall’s regulatory services.

LEP board director, Simon Tregoning, said: “Effective regulation is vital to keep the public safe but we want to make sure it doesn’t become a barrier to growth.

“Better Business for All is about business-led improvements to create a regulatory environment that promotes business success and provides public protection.”
