Wiltshire Council has paid out more than £11m in the recently announced Restart Grants to 1,520 businesses, and is now opening the window for new Restart Grant applications to support businesses as they reopen following the easing of lockdown. In total, the council has paid more than £156m so far to Wiltshire businesses during the pandemic.
Wiltshire Council has successfully bid for more than £4.4m from the Government's Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme to reduce carbon emissions by upgrading the heating systems in many of its buildings.
As the first step on the Government's roadmap out of lockdown is implemented on 29 March, Wiltshire Council is updating people on the services available from that date, along with important public health advice.
Wiltshire Council is reminding any businesses that have not yet applied for Local Restrictions Support Grants (LRSG) to do so as soon as they can, as the closing dates for applications are fast approaching.
