Advice and support on Coronavirus (Covid-19) 

Affected council services

We are taking the necessary immediate and longer-term steps to support and protect residents, staff and partners. Our focus is keeping critical services running, particularly those supporting vulnerable people such as our children’s and adults’ services, coroners, urgent road repairs, waste disposal and public health.

At the moment, our priority is ensuring staff can run our critical services – public health, adults, children’s, regulatory services, urgent road repairs and waste disposal.

We are:

  • Asking staff to work from home, where possible
  • Looking at how we can protect the most vulnerable
  • Minimising council meetings in line with Government guidance 
  • Cancelling all public events and large gatherings, such as a recruitment open day, adult learning courses, some theatre and attraction events.
