Engaging with businesses

Watford welcomes and engages with new investors to ensure they are connected into the local business community as much as they require and that every support necessary is given to their growth.

  • Watford Welcomes is a soft-landing welcome package of support and introductions designed to support businesses setting up in Watford
  • Watford Aftercare is an ongoing engagement with Watford Borough Council to ensure business issues are heard and addressed where possible and that opportunities to expand are supported
  • Watford’s business networks bring together groups of businesses in the same sector or location to encourage networking and highlight shared opportunities

.@WatfordCouncil wants your views on how Watford town centre should evolve over the next 20 years - do you want new green spaces, more focus on pedestrians, civic spaces and art, more independent retailers or sustainable transport - have your say at http://watford.commonplace.is
