Financial assistance for businesses (Covid-19)

Local Restrictions Support Grant (Sector)

Businesses subject to national restrictions that have been required to remain closed since March will be entitled to funding under the Local Restrictions Support Grant (Sector). The amounts payable under this scheme are the same values and frequency as the Local Restrictions Support Grant (Closed), but will take effect from 1 November and will continue to be paid on an ongoing basis so long as the restrictions remain in place.

Businesses required to remain closed under national restrictions since 23 March are:

  • Nightclubs
  • Sexual entertainment venues & hostess bars

Due to limited numbers of businesses of this type in the district, we are not providing an application form for this scheme.

We anticipate further information will be made available towards the end of November and recommend that you check this webpage for updates.

How to apply

To apply, please e-mail [email protected] quoting Local Restrictions Support Grant (Sector) and your Non-Domestic Rates account reference number in the subject field. Please include in the e-mail the following information:

  • Your name
  • Address of business premises
  • Type of establishment operated
  • Confirmation that the business was trading in March this year but has remained closed since 23 March and not operated in any other substantive capacity.
