The Business Growth team is focused on supporting enterprise and prosperity and ensuring that all businesses in the region achieve their full potential, and realise their ambitions for growth.

The team aim to offer a seamless process and targeted guidance for businesses seeking to operate or expand in the area. To this end, they can assist you in securing a commercial property either as a tenant or buyer, procuring a development licence or ground-lease, or, in specific circumstances, helping you with a turnkey design and build with you as a PKC tenant.

As well as offering a transparent and efficient planning process for your investment, they will also help you navigate funding and incentive schemes to access new markets in the UK and overseas. Essentially, they will open doors into local organisations specialising in research, innovation and skills in and around the various sectors they have prioritised within the area’s economic strategy for growth.

Perth and the wider region has a thriving business community that is supported by a number of organisations and networks committed to growing the economic impact and long-term sustainability of our area as a whole.

From regional networking groups for peer-to-peer support and opportunities to do business in your area, to national agencies focused on helping you grow, there is no better time to connect with your local business community.
