BUSINESSES across the borough could be eligible to receive a grant of up-to £3,000 if they have been allowed to open outdoors.

The grant will help businesses who have faced an additional cost to reopen as lockdown restrictions continue to ease.

The money could help cover the cost of gazebos, tables and chairs, and payment equipment for outdoor use.

Business owners can now apply for the grant, but the money will be given on a first-come-first-serve basis.
