Seasonal hospitality businesses whose hopes of opening at Easter have been dashed can now apply for a new grant to help tide them over.
Great Yarmouth Borough Council is asking eligible seasonal hospitality companies to apply for the £1000 and £2000 grants via their website.
On top of this, the additional restriction grants scheme (ARG) has been extended. The council, as part of the package, is offering £2,000 to companies who pay business rates and must remain closed, and £1,000 to those who do not pay business rates and must remain closed.
A local restrictions support grant (LRSG) is also available for non-essential retail, leisure, personal care, sports facilities and hospitality businesses who must keep their doors shut for the foreseeable.
These grants are from £2,096 to £4,714 depending on the rateable value of the business.
The council has asked that people who have already successfully applied for these grants do not apply again as the payments will be automatic.
