BBFA project up for award


A new approach to regulation, which has achieved a 45% increase in businesses seeking regulatory advice from Cornwall Council, has been shortlisted for a national award.

The Better Business for All (BBFA) project is a partnership between Cornwall Council’s regulatory services and the business community that aims to provide regulatory advice and guidance to save companies time and money.

Designed to boost the Cornwall’s economy, BBFA is being driven by the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

Now the programme has been named a finalist in the Government’s inaugural BBFA awards. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on March 8.

LEP board director, Sarah Trethowan, said: “The success of BBFA Cornwall is the result of genuine collaboration between Cornwall Council, the LEP and the business community.

“Reducing the regulatory burden on businesses is a priority for the LEP. This partnership is ensuring that the Council’s regulatory services meet the needs of local businesses.”
