Coronavirus: council service information and advice

Information about changes to council services as a result of coronavirus

The Discretionary Business Grant Fund is now closed. All applications are now being assessed against the criteria and we will contact applicants as quickly as we can with a decision.

Please do not call as we will not be able to give any further information at this stage.

The Covid-19 Discretionary Business Grant Fund is an additional fund for small and micro businesses that are not eligible for the Small Business Grant Fund or the Retail, Leisure and Hospitality Fund.

We received £1.9m to allocate to businesses. As this is a limited amount of funding provided by central government, we need to prioritise which types of businesses will receive funding and the level of funding awarded.
