New! Leeds Local Restrictions – effective Tomorrow (Sat 26th Sep)

Dear Business

This afternoon we have received the news we were hoping wouldn’t arrive! The Government has this afternoon announced new local restrictions for Leeds which will take effect from tomorrow (Saturday 26th September).
Otley is included within these restrictions as we fall under the ‘bin rule’, ie. we have our bins collected by Leeds Council.
To help you understand what is included within these new restrictions, please see below link to the BBC website:

Also, I’m sure you saw the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, announce The Job Support Scheme yesterday, with the aim of reducing huge job cuts across the country after the government introduced new measures to tackle a rise in coronavirus cases. See the BBC’s summary of this financial support and how it can help your business:

If you have any concerns or questions, we are here to help and can be contacted by emailing

In the meantime, please continue to support your fellow #Otley businesses and #StaySafe!
