Applications for the Business Support Grant closed on 28 August 2020.

Since the launch of the Small Business, Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grants Fund in April this year, we have contacted all customers who qualified for a payment from one of these schemes and have so far paid out over £52.4 million and assisted nearly 5,000 of our business rate customers.

These grants have been vital to the local economy, helping ensure the survival of shops, cafes, hotels and several other businesses within our district.
