Additional Restrictions Grant for Street Traders

Street Traders have been severely affected by the crisis through the loss of trade due to lockdown and associated restrictions.  It is therefore proposed that a grant is provided to traders who have been issued with their licence during the period 2020/2021.  

The Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) supports businesses that are not covered by other grant schemes or where additional funding is needed.  We will be processing ARG applications to cover the cost of refunding your last year’s licence fees.  We hope this will give you some money to make this difficult time a bit easier.

How to apply for the Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG)

If you have been issued with a licence, you can now submit an application for the Additional Restrictions Grant to cover the cost of any licenses. 

When completing the online form:

  • ensure that you identify the correct trading period, i.e. Street Traders & Sale Town Centre will be 01 April 2020 to 31 March 2021 and MUFC Licenced pitches will be 01 August 2020 to 31 July 2021;
  • you provide your National Insurance Number; and,
  • you provide your Licence Number, which can be found on your licence or the cover letter which the licence was sent out with.

Please ensure that you apply as soon as possible as applications after 31 March 2021 may not be processed.
