Support for business community - Coronavirus
The council continues to work on behalf of our business and communities to minimise the negative impact on the economy and ensure businesses have the support they need throughout the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We are liaising closely with both the UK and Scottish governments and other partner organisations to deliver vital guidance and assistance at this very difficult time. Please monitor these pages for the most up-to-date information available to the Aberdeenshire community.
We also share updates as they become available on Twitter and LinkedIn. If you have a specific request and wish to contact a member of the Aberdeenshire Economic Development team, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
View advice on reopening a business. The information is supported by officers from a number of services in the council, such as Trading Standards, Area Teams and Economic Development.
If you require cross service support in order to assist in your business re-opening or adapting following lock down restrictions, please fill in the Easing Lockdown Support form and we will assist you with your enquiry or table your proposal at our Easing Lockdown Support Forum.
Please send full details of your proposal including site location plan, any other plans, photographs or detail that may allow a full response to email@example.com. Please add your site address into the subject of the email; the more comprehensive your submission the quicker we can respond.
