The government have announced that they plan on easing the total ban on building in areas threatened by coastal erosion. The British Chambers of Commerce have welcomed this announcement as they believe it to be a creative idea that would help boost the local economies of many coastal areas. These areas would be suitable locations for travel and leisure businesses. To find out more, visit Franchise Direct’s directory of travel and leisure franchise opportunities.

The number of new business accounts opened this year is running ahead of last year's monthly average, according to figures released by Barclays Bank. Barclays economist, Julian Frankish commented on the figures, saying that all the numbers seem to say the business stock has been relatively robust, much more so than you would have expected if you talked to companies this time last year.
