I am a business

The government has announced a further lockdown for England

Everyone is required to stay at home, except for a few very specific purposes: 

  • essential shopping
  • for work, if you absolutely cannot work from home
  • exercise
  • to seek medical assistance (including to get a Covid-19 test).

Visit the GOV.UK website for guidance on the national lockdown: stay at home

The Council is assisting businesses to apply for Government grants, based on their rateable value as well as to access additional funding provided by the Government to councils.

Please note: that self-employed can now also apply for grants.

Visit the Business Support Grants page for the latest updates

The Council will also be working with businesses to ensure they continue to trade safely and in a COVID secure way to help keep businesses and customers in borough as healthy as possible.
