Grants to help restarts

Published on: Tuesday, 13th April 2021

Erewash Borough Council has now made Restart Grants available online to help businesses re-open safely following the easing of some coronavirus measures from 12th April.

They are aimed at businesses such as shops, pubs and gyms who can open their doors again in the latest phase of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown.

There are two types of grant payments available:

  • Restart Grants for non-essential retail businesses.  Payments are £2,667, £4,000 or £6,000 depending on rateable value.
  • Restart Grants for hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym businesses.  Again, depending on rateable value, grants will be £8,000, £12,000 or £18,000.

More information about which types of businesses fall into the eligible categories is on the Covid Grants page at

An online application form for the Restart Grant is required from all eligible applicants.  Businesses are advised to register for a My Erewash business account on the council’s website, if they have not done so previously, where full details of the criteria and the online application form are available.
