Since March 2020 we have made grant payments totalling over £54 million to support local businesses throughout the pandemic. The council has already successfully delivered £5.1 million of Additional Restrictions Grants (ARG) across two rounds.  The council has been awarded a third round of funding and has been working to create new schemes to provide financial support and expert advice to support local businesses.
