Business grants and support

  • Closed Business Lockdown Payment

    If you have successfully claimed LRSG-C from us we will automatically pay you the one-off Closed Business Lockdown Payment, you don't need to apply again.

Financial help is available to support local businesses during national lockdowns and periods of tiered local restrictions.

There are different schemes available, depending on your business’s circumstances and whether it has been forced to close:

Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG-C) – for businesses that have been forced to close due to national lockdowns or local restrictions.

Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG-O) – for businesses linked to the hospitality and leisure sectors that have remained open, but were severely affected by the tier 3 restrictions between 2 December and 30 December 2020.

Additional Restrictions Grant – a discretionary scheme for businesses that are not registered for Business Rates, but have been severely impacted by national or local restrictions.

Christmas Support Payment – for ‘wet led’ pubs that would have been open and trading on 30 November if it wasn’t for the government restrictions.

Closed Business Lockdown Payment - a one-off top up grant to support businesses that have been forced to close during national restrictions from 5 January 2021.


You will not be able to claim if the business has entered into administration or insolvency, or has exceeded state aid limits.

To apply you will need to register for a My Chesterfield account and will be asked provide evidence to support your claim.
