Additional Restriction Grants
Cornwall Council has launched the application process for the Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG), aimed at businesses which have been forced to close or limit trading during the current coronavirus lockdown.
Cornwall has been allocated £11.5m to support businesses that are ineligible for other forms of financial support and have fixed ongoing costs such as rent or mortgage payments, loans or lease agreements for capital equipment or rental of workspaces.
Businesses have until 23.59pm on Sunday, January 31, to apply for a one-off grant.
Those eligible include businesses which:
- Have not previously received any form of coronavirus grant support
- Are Cornwall based and owned
- Have been forced to shut and are not business rate registered
- Have been severely impacted by the current lockdown, but are ineligible for other grant support because they have not been mandated to close.
- Businesses with a rateable value of more than £51,000 who were eligible but did not apply for an Additional Restrictions Grant in November.
Please share this information with businesses in your area. Full details can be found at www.cornwall.gov.uk/BusinessSupportGrant.
This web page has been set up centrally, for all members of the public in England and Wales to report suspected Covid-19 breaches to the police.
The received reports are passed onto the appropriate police force.
feel free to share.

Essential work will be taking place (weather permitting) from Wednesday 13th January 2021 for several days. The park will remain open while contractors undertake the work. Some equipment/areas may be temporarily out of use. Users of the park are asked to avoid those areas and follow current guidance on COVID-19 and stay safe.
We have been alerted by different sources, to a scam that is now in wider circulation, that starts with a text and advises the user that they are eligible to apply for the vaccine. Users are then invited to click on the link in the text message and are taken to a web page, again that looks very convincing. It goes on to ask for some personal information, for them to be able to apply for the vaccine.
The details asked for:
• Date of birth
• Proof of address
• Card payment details
With the recent approval of multiple vaccines in the UK, these types of scam attempts are likely to continue, as fraudsters continue to take advantage of the rollout to so many people.
Recipients are advised to report scams to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or www.actionfraud.police.uk.
