Our market place - extra services we offer
The money we receive from the Government, including business rates, has reduced from £8.4m in 2009 to £4.1m in 2019. One of the ways we are working to reduce this funding gap is to generate income by offering more paid-for services. If you buy from us you can trust us to get the job done. And you are helping the district too. This is because we reinvest the money you pay in services which benefit all who live in, work in and visit Wyre Forest.
You can buy or hire all of these services from us:
