COVID-19 support

Hertfordshire LEP and our partners are working hard to support our businesses and communities at this difficult time.

Roadmap to recovery

Our Economic Recovery Plan, Unlocking Hertfordshire, was published to chart a clear route through the short-medium term economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and define actions in response. It aims to accelerate recovery in the short term, but will also position Hertfordshire for sustained and good economic growth in the years thereafter.
