Local Restrictions Support Grant

This scheme is to support local businesses during the 5 November to 2 December 2020 national lockdown and during periods of local restrictions.

The government will also give affected businesses up to £3,000 pm under the Local Restrictions Support Grant if their premises are forced to close.

Where a business in England is required by law to close it will be eligible for a grant based on the rateable value of its business premises.

The grant is payable to an eligible business for every complete three weeks period:

  • Rateable value up to £51,000 - £1,000

  • Rateable value over £51,000 - £1,500

The grant will be extended to cover each additional 3-week period, so if the business is closed for 6 weeks it will receive £2,000 or £3,000, depending on the rateable value of the property.


A business may be eligible if it:

  • occupies property on which it pays business rates

  • is in a local lockdown area and has been required to close because of the formal publication of local restrictions guidance that resulted in a first full day of closure on or after 9 September. This funding is not retrospective

  • has been required to close for at least 3 weeks because of the lockdown

  • has been unable to provide its usual in-person customer service from its premises

This could include non-essential retail, personal services or cafes/restaurants that operate primarily as an in-person venue, but which have been forced to close those services and provide a takeaway-only service instead.

Eligible businesses will get one grant for each property liable for business rates within the lockdown zone.


This includes a:

  • business which is able to continue to operate during the lockdown because it does not depend on providing direct in-person services from its premises

  • business that has chosen to close, but has not been required to close as part of a local lockdown

  • business that is still subject to national closures e.g. nightclubs
