Businesses Affected By Lockdown Can Now Apply For Support Grants

Businesses forced to close during lockdown can now apply for support grants from .

Payments will be made to eligible businesses from Monday 16 November.

Businesses forced to close, which are registered for Rates, can receive grants worth up to £3,000 per month under the Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG).

Businesses need to have a rateable value and be registered for rates to receive the grant.

These businesses will be eligible for the following:

•For properties with a rateable value of £15k or under, grants to be £1,334 per four weeks

•For properties with a rateable value of between £15k-£51k grants to be £2,000 per four weeks

•For properties with a rateable value of £51k or over grants to be £3,000 per four weeks

Applications for a Local Restrictions Support Grant can be made on the website –

Local Authorities are also being given funding, additional to the rates grants above, to implement an Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG).

This will be a single allocation based on £20 per head of population for local authorities to use to run a discretionary grant scheme.  These can be paid to businesses severely impacted, rather than closed, and businesses forced to close but which may not have a rates account and are therefore ineligible for the LRSG.

Information on the discretionary Assisted Restriction Grant will be made available next week.

Councillor Daren Hale, the portfolio holder for investment and regeneration, said: “These are difficult and challenging times for many businesses, especially those in sectors such as , retail and hospitality.

“The council is committed to ensuring the financial support available reaches these businesses as quickly as possible, and I can assure people that officers have been working flat-out to ensure we have the most efficient structure in place to do this.

“There is information on ’s website, and I urge any business interested in finding out more to make this their first port of call. If they need further information, they should contact our business support team.”
