    The discussion covered a wide range of issues from lack of available and suitable commercial space, to how Lancing could be reshaped to help attract the talent that businesses are seeking. 

    Jonathan also asked what support businesses would like from government, with businesses highlighting A27 improvements, establishing an Innovation Hub on the park and investing in the Lancing area to create a 'green town'.

    On 5th July 2019 HR Managers and business leaders from across Adur and Worthing met with Tim Loughton MP and the DWP at the Experience Centre, Ecshmann House, to hear all about the benefits provided by Universal Credit, Apprenticeship Support, Mentoring Circles, Access to Work and Disability Confident.

    This free session was organised by Lancing Business Park BID in partnership with the Worthing & Adur Chamber of Commerce and we would like to thank Philip Kennedy, Managing Director of Eschmann Technologies Ltd, for donating their wonderful conferencing facility and hosting this event.

    Emma Wareham, DWP County Partnership Manager and her Team provided an enjoyable and informative session, explaining how Universal Credit is really flexible, enabling employees to work more than 16 hours a week and still claim, as well as adjusting benefits to help the self-employed and those who work less during school holidays.

    Universal Credit also provides 85% of Childcare costs to enable parents to return to work and a benefits calculator so that employees can check first-hand how increasing their working hours, will increase their income as benefits will be adjusted monthly to support their earnings.

    The session also provided information on additional benefits available to support Apprentices on a Care Plan and opportunities for employers to donate 6 hours (over 3 weeks) to help mentor young people back into work.


    Attendees were also very pleased to hear that the Access to Work Scheme provides up to £52,900 per employee per year, to provide support, advice, equipment and adjustments, to aid those with a health condition or disability to access work. 

    Disability Confident is a new government scheme which has been launched to support employers make the most of the skills and talents that people with a disability, or long term health condition can bring to the workplace. This is a simple and achievable accreditation scheme that will help employers promote their positive approach to recruitment.

    This seminar provided useful contacts, support information and lots of food for thought.

    Last week LBP & AWBP hosted the free Gigabit Breakfast for businesses to hear about the potential of the new 1GB Broadband technology, which is currently being installed in the Council depot in Commerce Way. 

    LBP would like to thank Lawrence Boon and Spencer Wells at Fizz Creations for providing their wonderful facility free of charge, for making us feel so welcome and for kindly providing all the refreshments.  LBP are very grateful for this support and attendees were fascinated to view Fizz's product range whilst enjoying the catering, funded by AWBP and supplied by The Pit Stop Cafe at Shoreham Vehicle Auction.

    Peter Raynsford and Steve Maton from 5Rings Group explained how Lancing Business Park will be the first to benefit from the new end to end  fibre technology,  with each new connection capable of supporting 250 users and providing upload and download speeds of 1,000 Megabits per second. 

    Adur and Worthing Council's partnership with City Fibre will see this new technology built-out from the business park and a site in Durrington, to provide services for businesses and residents across the Adur and Worthing area.

    Delivery on Lancing Business Park is currently planned for Q3 2019, with significant pavement works across the park to enable this roll-out. Dave Harper from City Fibre attended the breakfast and explained how essential these works are to building infrastructure that will meet current and future business needs, with the new network expected to be 50% to 70% cheaper than the current BT Gigabit network.

    Peter also reported that the government have launched their Gigabit Connection Voucher Scheme which provides up to £2,500 towards the costs of installing this new technology. To qualify for this funding businesses need to fit the following criteria:

    • Small or Medium Business with less than 250 staff
    • Annual turnover below 50mil
    • Not received more than 200,00 in grants over last 3 years
    • 1 Voucher per business

    Businesses are encouraged to act quickly if they would like to secure a voucher, as already half of the fund has been allocated and once it's gone it's gone. Businesses can apply for a voucher and then they have 12 months to use the voucher.
