Make It York broadly welcomed the Chancellor’s measures today.
Sean Bullick, managing director of Make It York said, “We welcome the Chancellor’s budget announcement today that outlined the further support for businesses that have been highly impacted by the pandemic.
“Measures such as a business rates holiday and the extension of the furlough scheme will be a real boost for many businesses during this challenging time.
“The introduction of the new restart grant scheme aimed at helping owners of pubs, restaurants, shops and other businesses which have been impacted by the pandemic restrictions to reopen will also be crucial to many York companies within the hospitality and retail sectors.
“The additional support for the culture sector is also hugely positive for many organisations within the city, and our team will continue to ensure York businesses are aware of how they can access support available to them and provide targeted guidance and support.”
