Local Restrictions Support Grant

The Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG) is payable to local business based on the level of restrictions placed on Barrow Borough Council as part of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The criteria and amounts will vary based on the level of restrictions but also based on the size of the business and whether or not you were mandated to close.

The business categories eligible to apply for these grants are listed here for you to check: National Restrictions.  The Scheme for businesses mandated to close for lockdown includes ratepayers that fall into the closed guidelines within the National Restrictions. The Scheme for specific business types trading during Tier 2 includes ratepayers that fall into the hospitality, leisure and accommodation categories.

Local Restrictions Support Grant - for specific business types trading during Tier 2

Barrow Borough Council was placed in Local COVID Alert Level High (Tier 2) on the 17 October 2020.  This lasted for 19 days before the national lockdown.

This financial support will apply to those businesses within the leisure, hospitality and accommodation sectors where Business Rates apply.

Local Restrictions Support Grant - for businesses mandated to close for lockdown

This support package is for businesses who were mandated to close as part of the national lockdown.  The national lockdown is for the fixed 28 day period from 5 November 2020 until 2 December 2020.

When the national lockdown is lifted this financial support will cease and financial support will return to the eligibility and rates as determined by the Local COVID Alert Level which applies to the borough at that time.
