Business support during the tramworks

The Trams to Newhaven project have published the ways they are trying to support local businesses impacted by the Leith Walk tramworks.

We note several schemes are only available to businesses who directly request it from the Trams project, so urge any local businesses to take up the offers.

Full details are on tramstonewhaven.co.uk and include various marketing campaigns, Council-funded discounts, cargo-bike hire and the Business Continuity Fund.

The Business Continutity Fund for rents, wages and general operational costs can be found here on the Trams website.
