Give your views on 'cost of living' crisis 



Many businesses have experienced a very difficult time over the last two years and are now faced with rising energy costs and inflation pressures.  

Our Hertsmere Works Business Survey is intended to assess the impact of the crisis on businesses based in Hertsmere and will help inform our work and how we prioritise the implementation of our economic development plan going forward. In addition, we are looking at ways to improve our town centres and we would appreciate your views on this.

Your responses will be treated confidentially and will used for council purposes only. Your company information will not be shared with any third party. Please respond by filling our our survey, which should take no more than five minutes, by Wednesday 15 March 2023.
