Additional Restrictions Grant

We are pleased to be able to tell you that we are launching our second phase of the Additional Restrictions Grant fund.

The first phase focussed on businesses in the following categories:

  • Organisations that service the Events sector that have not been mandated to close but can demonstrate severe impact; 
  • Regular market traders, with fixed property related costs, such as rent, who do not have their own specific rateable value; 
  • Organisations whose main service is supplying businesses legally required to close in the retail, hospitality and leisure sector and have been severely impacted by restrictions put in place to control the spread of Covid-19.
  • Childcare organisations within commercial settings that have not been mandated to close but can demonstrate severe impact

In addition to these businesses, we will now be able to support the following categories:

  • Key Sector Employers. Those businesses in the borough employing more than 10 staff and in the following business sectors; Manufacturing, Logistics, Creative and Digital, Business Financial and Professional Services
  • Strategic Businesses. Those businesses trading in national or international markets that, if lost, would represent a permanent loss of productive capacity within the borough
  • Small and Micro Businesses. Those businesses who may not have a business premises but, do have business assets that they must pay for in order to run their business

No matter which category you apply for, you must be able to prove there has been a severe impact to your business and you must be able to provide proof of your business assets.

A full overview of eligibility, our updated guidance document and our new application form will go live on our website tomorrow! Keep an eye on our social media channels for the moment you can make an application.
