Hundreds of Bury businesses affected by the Covid-19 pandemic are missing out on cash help – simply because they have not applied for it.
Bury Council has been allocated £3 million to help companies who were ineligible to receive cash support under previous business rate discount schemes.
The deadline to apply was 30 April – but this has now been extended to 31 May. The council has contacted more than 1,000 local companies it thinks could be eligible, but has received fewer than 100 applications.
