DCC business initiative underway

The second meeting in an initiative by the DCC to keep in touch with city businesses has just got under way.

Mayor Dave Cull and senior managers began a meeting at 5.30pm, part of what Mr Cull has described as a "red carpet, not red tape" approach.

The idea of the meetings is to get feedback from businesses on the issues they are having, and their views of council initiatives.

Mr Cull says the agenda was open, and more of the events are planned as the council attempts to become more responsive to the needs of the sector.
