SMALL BUSINESS GRANT INFORMATION

I was asked what the criteria and arrangements are regarding the latest discretionary grant funding for businesses from the Government that is to be administered by the Council. I took this up and the reply I received is below.

“Hello Cllr Anderson –
We received detailed guidance on this scheme on 13 May. You can read it here:

We are currently finalising the scheme design. We hope to provide detailed information next week. We will ensure that all Members are provided with the key information so that they can share it with businesses in their area.”
