This week the Chamber surveyed members and asked three questions:

Do you have the capability to operate your business online - 57% of respondents said NO.

Has your landlord offered an acceptable discount for the lockdown period - 63% of respondents said NO

Based on level 3, at what capacity can your business operate at:

  • 24% said 100%
  • 35% said 50%
  • 22% said 25%
  • 19% said 0%

This suggests that almost 60% of businesses can operate in level 3 at between 50 - 100% and a further 22% at 25%.

Chamber Chief Executive, Michael Barnett said “this is a good level of activity under level 3 and businesses should do all they can to ensure they comply with the criteria - nothing would be worse than to return to level 4”.
