Local Restrictions Support Grant (closed)

The government has provided funding to support businesses which had to close due to Tier 2 and Tier 3 local restrictions from 2 December.

If your business was affected by the national lockdown restrictions in November, you will need to apply for the Lockdown Restrictions Grant.

Is my business eligible?

Your business may be eligible if it:

  • Had to close due to the central government restrictions (for example, you are a public house not serving substantial meals)
  • Was occupied and open as usual before the change in restrictions
  • Was on the rating list before 3 December 2020

Is my business ineligible?

Your business will not be eligible for this grant if:

  • You have chosen to close or are in receipt of unoccupied property rates relief
  • You have reached the state limit

Grant payment amounts:

Payments will be made to eligible businesses on a rolling 14 day qualifying period. This will continue throughout the time the local restrictions are in place and if your business has not had a change of circumstances.
