Local Restrictions Support Grant (Closed)

LRSG (Closed) scheme is predominantly a mandatory scheme and is applicable to businesses required to close during the period of national lockdown restrictions from 5 November to 1 December 2020 and as part of the new tier 3 closures from the 2 December 2020 onwards.

Businesses that are eligible are those that have been mandated to close by Government and include non-essential retail, leisure, personal care, sports facilities and hospitality businesses.

If businesses chose to operate as a takeaway, click and collect or online with delivery services they will be counted as closed because their substantive business has had to close.

During this period a single grant to cover the four week period will be paid to each eligible business. The grant amounts will be fixed. Businesses with more than one qualifying property will receive more than one grant.

The rate of payment for a four week period is:

  • For properties with a rateable value of £15k or under, grants to be £1,334
  • For properties with a rateable value of over £15k and below £51k, grants to be £2,000
  • For properties with a rateable value of £51k or over, grants to be £3,000

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