Received from MSDC on Friday 25th September.
Let’s hope that this is never needed in Mid Sussex but please note that if we go into a local lockdown – it may be part or all of our district – there is another business grant system with the attached guidelines published last night. LINK to guidelines.
We at Mid Sussex DC already have processes in place including an online system should it ever be needed (we would hit the ground running) and of course if we enter a local lockdown I will communicate again.
Please also note that whilst the COVID19 Business and Discretionary Grants have closed the Business Rates Reliefs and Discounts such as for the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Sector offering a 100% payment holiday in 20/21 are still available. If any business is in doubt about if we can help please do let me know. I would rather we were asked than businesses went without the help that we could give them
Please do let me know if you need any additional information or clarification. I am of course more than happy to discuss further
Thank you so much for all your help and support
