Coronavirus business support

2021 National lockdown business support grants

Any businesses who were eligible for the last round of Local Restrictions Support Grant will automatically receive a second payment for the period covering 16 February to 31 March without having to apply again.

You should expect to receive your next payment in early March.

There will also be further Additional Restrictions Grants (ARG) to cover this new period. We will publish further information about the next stage of the ARG as soon as we have it.

We are sending out a weekly local business e-bulletin to keep the district's business owners informed about the local and national support available. New subscribers to the service should go to our homepage and register through 'Sign up for email updates' (top right of screen).
