Coronavirus business support
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.
Receive regular local business news by email
We are sending out a weekly local business e-bulletin to keep the district's business owners informed about the local and national support available. New subscribers to the service should go to our homepage and register through 'Sign up for email updates' (top right of screen). Those who already receive our email bulletins should sign in and update their preferences on the Subscriber Preferences Page. 'Local business' can be found under the Economy category.
There are several types of grants available. Check which one you are eligible for before applying.
