Additional Restrictions Grant - 2021

Additional Restrictions Grant - 5th January onwards

What funding is available for Additional Restrictions?

Based on the gaps left from the LRSG (Closed) policy we have launched a complimentary set of grants using Breckland's discretionary resource. Under this approach, any business can apply if they are ineligible for LRSG (Closed) and struggling. Awards are grouped into four categories:

  • Businesses with high fixed property costs, who are forced to close (i.e. B&Bs) - £2,001 for 42 days
  • Businesses with high fixed property costs, who can still open but are struggling (i.e. supply chain, manufacturers) £1,500 per 42 days
  • Businesses with low / no fixed property costs, who are forced to close (i.e. regular market traders, hairdressers renting space) - £1,500 per 42 days
  • Businesses with low / no fixed property costs, who can still open but are struggling - (i.e. self-employed, open market traders) £1001 per 42 days

When will I get paid / how will I get paid?

We intend to make regular payments based on how long the Tier restrictions are in place.   Payments are currently being made on a 42 day cycle as per the current restriction guidelines.  This is a one off payment.

Please note, as we are entirely reliant on external funding, we will only be able to keep making payments where we have the resource to fit.

What do I need to complete the form?

You will need some key information about your business, and how it is impacted by restrictions.

You will also either need to supply your business rates and property details (this information is available on your 2020-21 Breckland business rates bill or you can contact our business rates team on 01842 756568 or you will need to upload equivalent evidence for us to validate your business is a current legitimate going concern.

Your business will not qualify for support under this scheme if it was in administration, insolvent, or a striking off order was made at the time the local restrictions started.
