Background – COVID19 has had a considerable impact on businesses. Whilst the Government is offering a level of support, many tenants will still be impacted and are looking at options to ease their cashflow commitments during this period. Whilst arrangements may be contractual, KCC needs to consider its position as a responsible landlord and how it might support its tenants during this period.
