Have your say on plans to boost employment and prospects by developing a Felixstowe Business Hub.

Felixstowe Chamber of Trade and Commerce has secured funding for an innovative project to give voice to new, emerging and existing businesses in Felixstowe and the surrounding area.

Awarded by East Suffolk Partnership, the funds will support a feasibility study into the need of prospective and current businesses to have a Felixstowe Business Hub.

Working in partnership with Felixstowe Port Users Association (FPUA), MENTA, the Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, and TechEast, the survey will look at the current and potential needs of local businesses, targeting sole traders, SME’s and larger companies across the region.

Roger Abbott chairman of Felixstowe Chamber of Trade and Commerce said: “Successfully securing this funding is excellent news and we are excited to be working with our partners to enhance the commercial offering in Felixstowe. The study will show what is currently on offer to local businesses and identify barriers to future growth and success.
