Council Leader, Philip Jackson, has welcomed the announcement from the Government about further support for businesses hit hard by the COVID pandemic.
Councillor Jackson said:
“It’s no secret that the pandemic has hit many businesses hard. We have been very successful in getting COVID grant and wider support to our local business community to see them through the worst of the pandemic, most recently through the Reshape grant.
“We welcome the Chancellor’s announcement of further support for the business community and await more information on how it can be used to help our local businesses, which we expect to receive in the coming weeks. We will issue a further press statement just as soon as we have further information and in the meantime, please keep an eye on our website for further information as it emerges.”
Since the start of the pandemic, North East Lincolnshire Council has helped distribute some £61m of funding to local businesses.
