National Lockdown & Local Restrictions – Support Grants

The website is open now for you to apply for the two grants above, and thankfully you can apply for both on the same application.

Who can claim

  • have been open as usual before the national restrictions were introduced
  • have been providing services in person to customers on the premises
  • be required to close on 5 November by the national restrictions (you may still qualify if you now offer takeaway or click and collect instead)
  • have been registered as the occupier for business rates on 5 November 2020

How much you’ll get

The amount you get depends on the rateable value of your premises.

You can find the rateable value on your latest business rates bill.

If your application is successful, you will get a single fixed amount grant to cover the 4 week period of national restrictions.
