On 31 October, the Government announced new measures to support businesses if they are required to close.

The Local Restrictions Support grant, administered by Epsom & Ewell Borough Council is now live. Simply click on the blue bar above or here to be taken to the relevant pages on the council's website.

The Grant is now open for applications, the word closed in the title relates to the status of your business, not the availability of the grant

Businesses required to close under lockdown restrictions can apply for a grant of up to £3,000 for the period 05 November 2020 to 02 December 2020. The size of the grant will be based on the rateable value of your premises:

  • Grants of £1,334 per month, for properties with a rateable value of £15,000 or less.
  • Grants of £2,000 per month, for properties with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000.
  • Grants of £3,000 per month, for properties with a rateable value of £51,000 or over.
