The Council’s Economic Development Team offers a wide range of support and guidance to businesses that are currently based, or are looking to locate to our District. We are the business facing department of Rochford District Council and a direct resource for the business community. Here, you can find out how Rochford District Council can work alongside your business. We are happy and able to discuss with businesses their needs in terms of land, premises, training, networking, grants.
The Team comprises of two Economic Development Officers (job share) and a Business Support Officer.
We work closely with our partners on all aspects of business support, we help businesses to access the support they need, whether that is from the Economic Development Team directly, other Council departments (i.e. liaising with planning or business rates) or external organisations and we can 'signpost' you to other providers if this is appropriate.
Every business is different and has different needs so whatever you need we can help to point you in the right direction.
