Additional Restrictions Support Grant Application

The Additional Restrictions Support Grant is a discretionary grant scheme to help those businesses that are forced to close, but have no rateable value, or those which – while not legally forced to close – are nonetheless severely impacted by the restrictions put in place to control the spread of Covid-19.

Three types of business are eligible:

  1. Businesses mandated to close that are without a business rates bill i.e. B&Bs paying council tax
  2. Businesses that can remain open but have been severely impacted – 70% of the grant amount paid to a closed business will be paid
  3. Businesses that have been mandated to close but have received support under the local restrictions support grant. A top-up payment under Additional Restrictions Grant will be made. Please note, top-up payments will be processed as soon as all businesses that have not yet received any funding under points 1 and 2 above have been assessed

Grants will be paid as follows:
