The vast majority of eligible businesses have now claimed grants, with almost £19 million paid out to 1,500 businesses in the district. These grants aimed to help the local economy through the Covid-19 pandemic, supporting shops, cafes, restaurants and many other businesses.

Uttlesford District Council is in the final stages of this programme, with the Small Business Grants Fund and the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grants Fund schemes closing on August 28, in line with government instructions.
