Welcome to the May issue of the C4B newsletter, which includes details of the C4B Board's response to the City Council's draft Local Development Framework (LDF), launched for consultation earlier this year. We also report on how the Business First graduate internship scheme can help small businesses, and look at how C4B is working to keep the discussions on Whitstable traffic management on the move.

Welcome to the February issue of the C4B newsletter, which highlights current and forthcoming businesses events, initiatives and activities taking place in the Canterbury district this spring. With C4B's special breakfast briefing on the Local Development Framework in February, followed by the March Business Month seminars and workshops, there are plenty of 'dates to save'. Help spread the word by forwarding this and future C4B e-newsletters on to your business contacts and colleagues.

C4B Newsletter

Our November issue highlights three very important initiatives that offer you an opportunity to shape the future of your district. The City Council's draft budget for the 2010/11 financial year is now up for public consultation; the LDF (Local Development Framework) soon will be, and Canterbury District Partnership Environment Group's travel business transport survey should have already reached your inbox. Your feedback is valued, so please take a few minutes to review and comment on these current initiatives, and look out for the LDF consultation document when it's launched in January.
