Discretionary Grants

In November 2020, the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced additional discretionary funding for Local Authorities to distribute to businesses.

The allocation for these funds from central government has been based on the number of residents within the borough, not the number of businesses per borough and as such Westminster’s original allocation was limited to only £5.2m. All Local Authorities have since received top-up funding from central government, still based on the number of residents formula. Westminster City Council’s top-up allocation is £2.3m bringing the total funding envelope to £7.5m. 

Westminster’s ARG Scheme

The £7.5m funding allocation will be used to administer Westminster City Council’s Additional Restrictions Grant scheme as set out below.
