Welcome to Hertfordshire Better Business for All


Here on these pages we talk you through the regulatory process

Better Business for All is Hertfordshire regulators’ response to reducing the burdens on business and aims to support growth by building stronger relationships between businesses, local regulators and other interested parties. The partnership, which has been endorsed by all of the county’s local authority leaders, was formed in 2013 and includes representatives from both public and private sector.

LEP Executive Director Neil Hayes said: "The Better Business for All Partnership is working to build trust between the private sector community and regulators. Our regulators have an important role to play in supporting economic growth and creating a level playing field in which business can flourish. This charter is a significant commitment to future collaboration which will ensure Hertfordshire remains perfectly placed for business."
