As part of its working relationship with the Wellland Market Towns Group and the Association of Market Towns, Uppingham First maintains a town centre database. The web based database includes business contact details and statistics on visitor footfall, parking useage, market capacity, current high street property leasing costs and the outputs of an end of year business confidence survey. The statistics combine to create a benchmarking Annual Report comparing Uppingham to other similar towns in the East Midlands. The 2009 Report will be presented to Directors of Uppingham First at their next meeting.

A recent meeting of Uppingham Town Council revealed that Rutland County Council is considering a proposal to mount an enlarged Saturday Farmers Market on a Saturday in the Market Square in addition to the present Friday Market. The proposal would require a regular Saturday road closure and the loss of parking in the Market Square. The Town Council has been urged to consider the impact of the proposal on local businesses but have now voted not to consult local traders. Businesses are being asked to let their views be known!
