We hold regular seminars and events that are fantastic for continual professional development and add real value to your business. They’re also a chance to connect with like-minded people.

We want you to get the support you need, when you need it. This is part of Selby District Council’s investment in supporting growth and investment.


The AD:VENTURE programme offers a comprehensive and innovative mix of tailored business support to boost growth and develop businesses in their early years. The scheme is run across the Leeds City Region area and businesses in the Selby district are eligible to apply.

Start-up businesses

When starting a business, you need to think about whether there’s a gap in the market, do you need a business plan, do you become Limited or Sole Trader, how do you register your business, how are you going to finance your business?

Business finance & funding

A conventional bank loan isn’t the only way to raise money to fund your business start and growth. There are lots of different options. Talk to us to find out more about the options and to ensure you get the best deal possible.

Business premises

We’re really well connected at the heart of Yorkshire and at the centre of the UK, with easy access to major road routes and rail links. We’ve got significant new business space coming onto the market, some of which have direct rail access.

Events & networking

There are many benefits from business networking, whether you’re a start-up or a well-established business. You make new contacts, obtain referrals, gain and share knowledge, build confidence and increase sales. At Selby District Council, we support and encourage a range of networking groups.
