Local Restrictions Support Grant (Open)

The LRSG (Open) scheme will provide financial support to Birmingham businesses linked to the hospitality, hotel, bed and breakfast and leisure sectors that have remained open but have been severely affected by the tiered local restrictions which were in place from *14 October to 4 November 2020 and 2 December 2020 onwards.

The following grant payments will be made for:

  • Grants of up to £934 per 28 day period for businesses occupying hereditaments with a rateable value of exactly £15,000 or under on the date of the commencement of the local restrictions.
  • Grants of up to £1,400 per 28 day period for businesses occupying hereditaments with a rateable value over £15,000 and less than £51,000 on the date of the commencement of the local restrictions.
  • Grants of up to £2,100 per 28 day period for businesses occupying hereditaments with a rateable value of exactly £51,000 or above on the date of the commencement of the local restrictions.

Those businesses where the Council are unable to attribute a rateable value to their trading premises will be entitled to grants at the lower rate of £934 per 28 day period.

From 2 December 2020 grant payments will be awarded on a 14 day rolling basis to fall inline with the government guidance.

* A pro rata amount will be awarded for the period from 14 October to 4 November 2020 (22 days).
