Help for Businesses
Following introduction of the new lockdown from 5th November, requiring non-essential businesses to close, the Government has confirmed additional Covid-19 emergency funding to Chichester District Council for a Local Restriction Support Grants programme. The funding is aimed at supporting any business which has been subjected to lockdown closures and who has a rateable property. For full details of the eligibility criteria, payment levels and application procedure please see here.

Resident Support
CDC have produced a guide with details of the Coronavirus support measures for residents covering such aspects as support during self-isolation, the furlough scheme, the hardship fund, the walk-through test and trace site together with a useful FAQ section covering other services provided at district level. Full details can be seen here.

Countdown to Christmas
In what has been a difficult year for all of us, especially local businesses and arts, culture and heritage organisations, CDC are encouraging everyone to do their bit this Christmas and support local businesses with their Countdown to Christmas campaign. Full details can be seen here.
