Deadline for 'Lockdown' Grants Near

Pembrokeshire businesses are reminded that applications for grants introduced in response to the recent Welsh Government ‘firebreak’ lockdown, close at 5 pm this Friday (20th November.)

The Lockdown Non-Domestic Rate (NDR) Grants are for businesses liable for business rates and more than 1,800 applications had been received by Pembrokeshire County Council as of yesterday (Tuesday, 17th November). Payments of over £5 million have been made.

The Welsh Government also launched a discretionary grant of £1,500 – the Lockdown Discretionary Grant – for businesses not on the NDR list who have been forced to close or seen at least an 80 per cent reduction in turnover as a result of the ‘firebreak’.

So far the Council has received more than 818 applications for the Lockdown Discretionary Grant.

This grant is now nearing the limit of applications and anyone considering applying is urged to do so as soon as possible before the 20th November deadline.

Given the volume of grants received, the Council respectfully asks applicants to be patient as the team processes the applications daily.
