HAMPSHIRE County Council has launched a new service to encourage businesses to invest in the county, whether they are starting up, expanding, or looking to move in.

The service, called Invest in Hampshire, offers tailor-made information to potential employers or investors about the area and offers advice and guidance on research, funding, and support.

The council is using Hippowaste as its example. The company chose 1000 Lakeside in North Harbour when it looked to expand.

A website has been launched to support the service, and illustrates what the county has to offer businesses.

Cllr Ray Ellis, executive member for economic development, said: ‘Hampshire is home to an extensive business community and exceptional economic conditions for growth.

‘We will be working to help companies discover what Hampshire has to offer, in terms of location, skills and business environment, that will meet their specific needs and make it an ideal location for them to base their organisation.’
