Following the Government’s announcement of the new national restrictions, District Councils in Devon are administering a new Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG) for businesses that have been forced to close.
The grants are for businesses which provide direct in-person services from premises and so have been required to close from 5th November until 2nd December. This includes non-essential retail, leisure, personal care, sports facilities and hospitality businesses.
There are different levels of grant for businesses required to close depending on the current rateable value (RV) of your premises:
- Premises with an RV of £15,000 and under will receive £1,334
- Premises with an RV over £15,000 and below £51,000 will receive £2,000
- Premises with an RV over £51,000 will receive £3,000
Payment of this grant covers the four weeks from 5 November until 2 December 2020.
