“There are still firms in the county who are eligible for support who have not yet come forward and I would encourage them to do so.”

Cllr Julian Thompson-Hill, the council’s lead member for finance, performance and strategic assets, said: “Business rate relief grants are now being paid to businesses and the council is doing all it can to ensure these grants are being processed as quickly as possible, in the vast majority of cases within 10 working days.
