Restart Grants

Applications for these grants will open soon

The Chancellor has announced one-off 'Restart Grants' from 1 April 2021 for business rate paying businesses in the non-essential retail, hospitality, leisure, personal care and accommodation sectors.

This grant replaces the Local Restrictions Support Grants which were awarded up to March 31 2021.

We are making preparations to ensure payments can be made as quickly as possible. Further information on the new application form will be posted on this webpage when final details and funding are received from central government.

Please do not contact us regarding Restart Grants as we are currently focusing on dealing with the applications for current and previous schemes.
