Council Encourages Applications for New Restart Grant Schemes

The Council is delighted to announce that two new ‘Restart’ grant schemes have been launched to help businesses in the non-essential retail, hospitality, leisure, personal care and accommodation sectors.

These Restart grants will provide local businesses with a one-off sum to enable them to reopen safely as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

The grants are being administered by the Council on behalf of the Government and there are different eligibility criteria:

  1. Restart Grant – RSG-NER
    A one-off payment of up to £6,000 is available for business rate payers offering in-person services and whose business is non-essential retail.
  2. Restart Grant – RSG-HPLC
    A one-off payment of up to £18,000 is available for business rate payers offering in-person services and whose business is in hospitality, leisure, accommodation, personal care, gym or sport.

The application process is quick and easy, and the amount paid is based on the rateable value of the property.  

If you are not sure if you are eligible, please call the grants helpline on 01329 824430 on weekdays from 8.45am to 5.15pm and a member of the Council team will be happy to help.
