Coronavirus: Changes to our Services

Our focus and actions will remain aligned with national advice. We are putting in place contingency plans to address the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on our services.

We remain open for business and as the situation develops we will continue to change and adapt our services.

We will keep this page up to date with news of any changes to our services.

As a Council we are committed to keeping our services available but we need to work with the community to slow the spread of the disease.  To do this we want to avoid face-to-face contact wherever we can to protect our customers and our staff.
We ask all customers to access services via our website where possible, or to contact us by telephone or email. Most enquiries can be resolved over the telephone or online.
