The Council’s discretionary grant programme is now open for applications.
This programme will deliver limited financial support for
- Businesses required to close who do not have a Business Rates assessment (such as those in shared accommodation), as well as
- Businesses severely impacted by the Government’s announcement of a further national lockdown from 5th November.
The Council will look to provide financial support to cover fixed property costs up to a maximum of £3,000 per month for businesses who must close and £2,100 for severely impacted open businesses, subject to eligibility and available funds.
The window for applications will be open from today, the 16th November, until midnight on 2nd December 2020. Further calls for applications will be made subject to local business need and available funds.
