Business Support during Covid-19

Below is information provided to us by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council Business Investment and Tourism Services team.


Updated on 30/11/2020

The East Riding will move into Tier 3 (Very High) of the three-level restrictions system, when national lockdown restrictions end.

Some of the key aspects of the Tier 3 restrictions are:

  • No mixing of different households indoors or outdoors, including hospitality venues and private gardens.
  • The rule of six applies in outdoor public spaces, such as parks.
  • Pubs and restaurants closed, except for take-away and delivery services.
  • Indoor entertainment venues closed.
  • Accommodation, such as hotels, B&Bs, campsites and guest houses, must close. There are several exemptions, such as for those who use these venues as their main residence and those requiring the venues where it is reasonably necessary for work or education and training.
  • Guidance against travelling in and out of Tier 3 areas.
  • Personal care, such as hairdressing, is allowed.

The tier restrictions will come into effect from the beginning of Wednesday, 2 December (00.01). Until then, the national restrictions will remain in place. The Government has said it will review tier allocations by 16 December:

Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) scheme

The Government has provided funding to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, to support businesses who have been severely affected by the national and Local Covid Alert Level 3 (Tier 3) restrictions and are not eligible to claim a grant under the other available schemes.

For period one of this scheme (4th November to 2nd December) eligible businesses are identified as:

  • Those which have been mandated to close, who do not have a rateable value and cannot claim under the Local Restrictions Support Grant schemes and have on-going fixed property related costs.
  • Businesses who are not mandated to close but are an essential retail or are part of the supply chain to the leisure, hospitality, retail and accommodation sectors.

Find out about eligibility and how to apply here:
