Planning Permission Support

The Council provides advice free of charge to businesses and industry concerning the need for planning permission, the laws and procedures that apply and the factors that will influence whether permission is likely to be granted.


Melton Business Forum

The forum is held at Melton Borough Council offices once every quarter (6pm-8pm), is very informal and FREE to attend! The forum also has a mentoring element for those businesses that require assistance or just want some FREE advice from industry experts.
