COVID-19 Advice for Businesses

COVID-19 Advice for Businesses

Maldon District Council is committed to supporting our businesses through this challenging period and we are working with our partners to provide advice and assistance as required. We are also taking decisions that will maintain the viability and sustainability of the Council over the coming months, to ensure we continue to deliver vital services.

We have welcomed the support announced for businesses by the Chancellor and guidance that will be provided in the coming days and weeks regarding this. We will continue to engage with local businesses and groups and are liaising with colleagues in other authorities to ensure best practice is being shared. We are using our social media channels to provide advice to businesses on this evolving situation and recognise the importance of supporting local employers. We will endeavour, with all expediency to implement the support as identified and in line with the forthcoming guidance.

Maldon District Council will process your business rates holiday and/or grant as soon as it can. You may need to provide additional information in order for any grant to be paid. More information will be available here.

To protect our residents and staff we would ask that customers do not visit the Council Offices. At this time, it is not necessary for businesses to contact the Council regarding these business support measures and doing so may divert our team and delay implementation of the forthcoming support. If the matter is extremely urgent by telephone 01621 854477. Thank you for your understanding.
