There are many issues to consider when relocating your business and the Economic Development Team at South Lakeland District Council can provide support for your decision-making and assist with information and practical actions.

  • First of all, you will need to find business premises. As a starting point, please use our Business Premises search engine. If you can't find what you are looking for, or have specific requirements please contact the Economic Development team.
  • Come along and meet some of the other businesses in South Lakeland at one of our networking business lunches.Herdy
  • Although grants aren't as available as they may have been historically, our finance pages contain a wealth of information on grants, loans, crowdfunding and other finance schemes.
  • Sign up to our e-newsletter to keep up to date on the latest South Lakeland business news and events. You can also follow us on Twitter @InSouthLakes.
  • You can find specific information about other businesses operating in your sector on our Key Business Sectors webpage.
  • Businesses can also find contact details for new suppliers (and potential new customers) via the Invest in South Lakeland Business Directory. If you haven't done so already make sure you add your own business details to the directory.

If you are considering relocating your company or organisation, there will obviously be other non-business factors to consider: housing, education, further education and the lifestyle you can expect to enjoy in South Lakeland. To help answer some of these questions, we've included a Lifestyle section on this website.

If there is anything else you'd like advice on, please contact us at the earliest opportunity.
