Community Awards Criteria

Local Business of the Year

This award will recognise the business which can demonstrate the most significant impact made in their market sector and local community.

The business must have been trading since April 2022 (TBC)

Examples might be businesses that have:

  • gone above and beyond in generating employment opportunities for residents
  • contributed to keeping the borough safe
  • or introduced innovative ideas in the sector.
