WARWICK District Council is among the fastest local authorities in the country to have processed applications for government grants to support local companies through the pandemic.

The authority sent out payments of almost £24million to businesses within the ten working days.

According to government figures received from the Department for Business Energy and Industry, Warwick district is in the top 15 per cent of council’s having administered and checked 68 per cent of claims received.

District finance spokesman Coun Richard Hales said: “I would like to thank the finance team for their tireless efforts to ensure that all eligible businesses in our district can take advantage of the support that is available to them.

“We know that our work is far from complete and are now in the process of contacting companies and individuals who have not yet applied.

“Our attention will then turn to the steps we can take to help our local economy to recover as quickly as possible after the lock down ends.” Information about business support and grants can be found on the Warwick District Council website.”
