These new grants, are one-off payments aimed at supporting rated eligible businesses in the hospitality and leisure sector affected by the Omicron variant, those eligible for payment include, but are not limited to:

  • Public Houses/Restaurants/cafes
  • Cinemas/Theatres/Tourist attractions/Night clubs
  • Hotels/B+Bs/Holiday homes

As this is a new scheme with new eligibility criteria, the Council is encouraging businesses falling within the hospitality, leisure, and accommodation categories to check the terms and conditions and submit an application as soon as possible. The closing date for application is 18th March 2022.

Leader of the council Cllr David Wright said

This is possibly a final opportunity for hospitality and leisure businesses who were affected by restrictions and fall in business, particularly over the festive season to receive the support they need. Thousands of businesses have already benefitted through the previous schemes the Council has administered.

“I would encourage all businesses in this sector to check they’re eligible and get their application to us.”
