Gap site incentive

Following the most recent government restrictions and guidance on social distancing we have had to suspend all non-critical site visits that may require access to customers’ premises. This means that we will be unable to process gap site incentive applications until the current restrictions are lifted.

We will still accept and log all applications received from retailers and once the activity can safely resume we will process the applications in the order that they were received.

From 1 April 2020 we will offer a gap site incentive scheme designed to incentivise business retailers to identify eligible premises that are not registered in the Central Market Operating system (CMOS). We will offer an incentive payment where you identify a gap site that is subsequently successfully registered (with a status of “tradable”) in CMOS.

United Utilities have signed up to the RWG Gap Site Incentive Good Practice Guide which can be found on the MOSL website.
