Due to issues of commercial confidentiality and differences in how precisely the locations of bids have been defined by applicants, we do not disclose data at the scale of parliamentary constituency.

412 applications have been received for the third round of Regional Growth Fund: of these, three have been received to support projects or programmes located within Essex. However, bids can be tendered by businesses located in different areas to the location of the activity and by consortia of multiple private and public organisations. We do not hold complete location information on all parties involved in a bid.
