Local Restrictions Support Grant (Closed) Tier 4

Birmingham entered Tier 4 on 31 December and this support scheme is applicable from this date until 4 January.

When local restrictions are imposed by Government at Tier 4 and a significant number of businesses are mandated to close then Local Restrictions Support Grant (Open) and (Sector) will cease to apply, and LRSG (Closed) will be superseded by the conditions set out in this addendum.

Eligible businesses

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.
