Local Restrictions Support Grant (closed premises) Application

The Local Restrictions Support Grant (closed premises) is for businesses that are required to close under local or national restrictions imposed.

To qualify for this grant, your business must be based in Copeland and has been:

  • Open as usual before the restrictions
  • Providing services in person to customers from the premises
  • Required to close due to restrictions imposed by government
  • Paying business rates for the premises before restrictions commenced        
  • If your business has previously been paid a Small Business Grant or Retail, Leisure and Hospitality Grant we will be able to fast track your application, however confirmation that your bank details remain the same is required.

The LRSG(C) is a mandatory grant for businesses that have a rateable value. Please note the scheme is not based on eligibility for rate reliefs.

A single grant to cover a set period will be paid to each eligible business. The grant amounts will be fixed.
