Following the Government’s advice in relation to further measures regarding social distancing, it’s important we protect both our residents and our staff. The council is now planning to restrict public access to our buildings from 12 noon today, Monday 23 March 2020.
Customer Service, Information Centres and Registrars will move to a first point of contact being a digital recommendation. We will not have any front of house staffing and facilities, and will only offer a limited face to face service available at our sites if it is safely managed, by appointment only and after a risk assessment deems it necessary to do so.
