Since 2 December, East Hampshire has been in Tier 2 – High Alert.
Eligible businesses required by law to close (pubs and bars that cannot operate as restaurants) can now apply for a Local Restrictions Support Grant (Tier 2) for closed businesses.
‘Wet-led pubs’, pubs that predominantly serve alcohol rather than food, can also apply for a Christmas Support Payment of £1,000. This scheme is expected to close at the end of January, so eligible businesses should apply now.
