Restart Grant

To support the recovery of the high street as Government trading restrictions were relaxed, the Chancellor announced the one-off payment 'Restart Grant'. This grant replaced the Local Restrictions Support Grant (CA/C) from April 2021 onwards (for eligible businesses).

This fund has now closed. Many thanks to all businesses that made an application.
