An overview of this week’s key updates:

Small businesses and charities – last call to check if you’re eligible

It’s the last few days to apply for money from the Discretionary Grants Fund, as the deadline for applications is Tuesday 30 June.

So if you’re a small or micro business or charity, you rent a work space in a shared office or studio and missed out on previous funding, take a look at the discretionary grant details to see if you’re eligible.

City centre street changes to go ahead after overwhelming support

Two city centre streets – St Benedicts and Exchange Street – will have a very different feel to them from the end of next week, after overwhelming public support was received on Norwich City Council and Norfolk County Council’s plans to make temporary changes to create more space.

More about the proposed changes for the two streets.
