Local Restrictions Support Grant (National Lockdown Feb 16th to March 31st 2021)

We are administering the Local Restrictions Support Grant (January Closed Addendum, 16/02/21 to 31/03/21) on behalf of Government, you can find further info on this scheme here.

All previous LRSG CA/C grant schemes/provision (other than this one) are now closed to application (November 5th 2020 to February 15th), including the Closed Business Lockdown Payment. Only businesses that applied for these grants by 31/03/21 will receive payments (where eligible).

The Local Restrictions Support Grant (National Lockdown Feb 16th to March 31st 2021) is available to eligible businesses in the District that are impacted directly by the 44 day National lockdown - Feb 16th to March 31st 2021. In a similar way to the Small Business Grant/ Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Funds which were delivered last year, the grant is available to rated operating businesses/ hereditaments (to qualify, a hereditament must be on the ratings list as of 05/01/21) that are required by law to close due to National Lockdown restrictions. Details of businesses required to close are available on the Government's website and you can check your eligibility for the LRSG on the Government website too.

Eligible hereditaments will receive the following grant payment (please note: grants will be awarded based on a hereditament's rateable value and any reliefs subsequently applied to an account will not impact eligibility):

  • if your business has a property with a rateable value of £15,000 or less, you will receive a grant of £2,096 for this 44-day qualifying restrictions period
  • if your business has a property with a rateable value over £15,000 and less than £51,000, you will receive a grant of £3,143 for this 44-day qualifying restrictions period
  • if your business has a property with a rateable value of £51,000 or above, you will receive a grant of £4,714 for this 44-day qualifying restrictions period.
