COVID-19 Licensing

Local Authority Support

The ARG is a discretionary fund for local authorities to use to support their local economies. Basingstoke are introducing a direct grant scheme for specific types of businesses within the borough – those within the travel, events and hospitality sectors. Full details can be found on our webpage COVID-19 support grant for businesses.

The grant scheme will close on Friday 18 February 2022 at 5pm (this is due to the fact that the Government requires all pre-payment checks to be made on all applications before the 28 February 2022) and the ARG scheme may close earlier if all our funding has been allocated.

Please be aware that these grants are not administered by the licensing team but centrally from the council, which means the licensing team will be unable to help you with any enquiries.
