Local Restriction Support Grants

About this form

The Government has announced the provision of Local Restrictions Support Grant to assist businesses that have been affected by Covid-19 Restrictions from the 31st October 2020 or mandated to close from 5th November 2020 to manage the spread of coronavirus. This includes

• non-essential retail
• leisure facilities
• personal care
• sports facilities
• hospitality businesses

Businesses to close and remain open - Schedule Regulations 15

Businesses which have had to remain closed since the first lockdown (23rd March 2020) but still intend to open once restrictions are lifted can apply under this scheme.

Eligible businesses must occupy properties appearing on the rating list and be registered to pay business rates.
Businesses that have chosen to close but not been required to will not be eligible for this grant. These businesses can claim a discretionary Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG).
