Grants update

We will have information on how to apply for the third round of Additional Restrictions Grant shortly.

The ​​​​Business Restart Grant, which now replaces the Local Restrictions Support grants, is a one-off business grant available to non-essential retail businesses (strand one), and hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym or sport business premises (strand two).

Due to the significant changes in guidance given to us by government, we need to create a new online form and grant application process for this scheme. We are currently working on this now and it will be available shortly on our website.
