We are now in a National Lockdown. Please view this link from the government to learn what this means: National Lockdown: Stay at Home (GOV.UK)

Non-essential retail can re-open. Read the government's roadmap out of lockdown for full details. 

We are operating restricted access to Council buildings with the majority of our staff working away from the offices. Access to buildings will be limited to those people who are homeless on the day. Please use our online and phone services wherever possible as we continue to provide key services, just in a different way.

This page will be updated regularly. The Service Status button below contains a table showing the latest updates for each Council department.
