NEW Retail Hospitality and Leisure Lockdown Grants Announced

Following the government’s decision to take the country into lockdown again, The Chancellor has announced a new round of one-off grants for Retail, Hospitality and Leisure business forced to close business premises.


Who gets what:


  • The grant is paid per business property affected, so each property will be entitled to a grant, even where a business operates from multiple properties:


  • £4,000 per premises with a rateable value of £15,000 or less
  • £6,000 per premises with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000
  • £9,000 per premises with a rateable value over £51,000


  • There is also further funding for discretionary grants to support businesses not eligible for the premises grant. These were previously paid to businesses that operated in an umbrella premises where they were not, perhaps the ratepayer, but they are nevertheless affected by the lockdown restrictions.


All grants will be paid and administered by the local authority that covers the business premises or location, as before. These are the known links for grants in the local regions we serve. The links may not yet provide access to these new grants, we expect this to take several days:


Scarborough Borough Council


Ryedale District Council


East Riding of Yorkshire Council


City of York Council
