Lichfield District Council and Tamworth Borough Council have today announced that they are to strengthen ties in support of business in the area.

The two areas are already tied closely together, sharing the same Policing division and unified colleges, amongst others.

Few details were given other than the two services at Drayton Manor and the think:Local web site, a partnership between 8 local authories in Staffordshire and the two Chambers of Commerce.

Councillour Neil Roberts of Lichfield District Council also highlighted the newly relaunched Commercial Property Bulletin as another useful service to businesses in the area.

The partnership are encouraging businesses to check out the Business support and advice section of Lichfield District Council’s web site.
