As with the other councils you cannot yet claim for the Additional Restrictions Grant.
 
Teignbridge Council
 
Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG) (Closed) – You are now able to claim for this scheme by following the link below.

Additional restrictions grant (ARG) – at present this is still not available to apply for.
 
Torbay Council
 
You still don’t appear to be able to claim for either scheme at the moment.
 
Dorset Council
 
Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG) (Closed) – You are now able to claim for this scheme by following the link below.
 
https://www.dorsetcouncil.gov.uk/emergencies-severe-weather/emergencies/coronavirus/business-and-employers/local-restrictions-support-grant-lrsg-for-premises-that-are-closed.aspx
 
Additional restrictions grant (ARG) – at present this is still not available to apply for.
 
It would appear that councils are prioritising the LRSG scheme but hopefully it won’t be long before businesses are able to apply for the ARG scheme.
 
If any client has an update on the grants I would appreciate any information so that this can be shared.
