Local Restrictions Support Grants - National Lockdown
This scheme is now open for applications and we will endeavor to process them all as soon as possible. Please help us to achieve this by carefully reading the following notes before submitting an application.
Please DO NOT make a further application now if you received a payment under this scheme for the National Lockdown in November. We are currently reviewing all previous applications and automatically making further payments up to the 15 February 2021 where possible. Any unnecessary applications made now will only delay that process.
Businesses that are eligible under the Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG) scheme are initially those that have been mandated to close by the Government due to the current national restrictions and include non-essential retail, leisure, personal care, sports facilities and hospitality businesses.
To receive this particular grant, qualifying businesses must have a business rates liability for the property that they occupy but they do not necessarily have to pay business rates, if for example, they are entitled to Small Business Rates Relief.
If you do not receive a business rates bill from us please DO NOT make an application for LRSG. You may still qualify for support under the Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) scheme that is now open for applications.
The value of grants payable under that LRSG scheme are linked to the Rateable Value (RV) for occupied properties:
• RV is £15,000 or below = £1334 per 28-day qualifying restriction period
• RV is over £15,000 but below £51,000 = £2000 per 28-day qualifying restriction period
• RV is £51,000 or above = £3000 per 28-day qualifying restriction period
