Coronavirus - COVID-19

Restart Grants for rateable businesses

The Restart Grant application form for businesses who pay business rates is now available.

You may find that you are put into the lowest category for the grant initially as we may not know the nature of your business but this will be rectified when your application is verified. If this is the case for you, please wait until you get confirmation of your grant award before contacting us. We apologise for any anxiety this may have caused but this is the quickest way for us to get your application into the system.
