Additional Restriction Grant

The Government recognises that some businesses that are required to close due to Covid-19 may not have rateable commercial premises and therefore won’t be covered by the main Local Restrictions Grants Scheme (LRSG).

Therefore the Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) has been made available by Government to Local Authorities to use at its discretion to support local businesses affected by the national restrictions. The awarding of this grant is at the total discretion of the Council but in accordance with the guidance issued by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
