Top up to local business grant fund scheme

I really welcome the announcement made over the weekend providing greater clarity on the discretionary element of the small business grants scheme, along with some extra resourcing, which will undoubtedly address a small number of challenging cases I have been taking up with the councils locally. You can find more details, here: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/top-up-to-local-business-grant-funds…. Yet again, Ministers have listened to the feedback and acted on it and I’m grateful for them taking these steps to help get this support out to our local small businesses here in Corby & East Northamptonshire, by ensuring common sense applies in local areas – it’ll make a big difference to those businesses!
