LGA confirms marinas, hire and passenger boats should be eligible for COVID19 business grants

Over the last few weeks British Marine has been working closely with Tourism Alliance to ensure that its members in the marine sector can qualify for the business grants announced by the Government. This includes the £25,000 cash grant for businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors which pay business rates and have a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000. It also includes a grant of £10,000 for businesses in these sectors which have a rateable value below £15,000.

Today, British Marine is pleased to announce that, following its discussions and representations with key industry figures, the Local Government Association (LGA) has confirmed that marinas, boat hire and passenger boat facilities should, in its view, be eligible for the leisure, hospitality and retail grant. This is a one-off cash grant of £10,000 or £25,000.
