Coronavirus – information for residents and businesses

This page is no longer being updated. Please visit for up-to-date information.

Update: Thursday 26 March 2020

In light of the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the health and wellbeing of our residents, staff and service users is our top priority. We are working hard to prepare for the spread of the virus and to provide up to date information on council services as the situation develops.

We are in regular contact with colleagues at Public Health England (PHE) and central government and are following and sharing their guidance.

We will update this page with the latest news and advice, so please check back here for information about school closures, council services and community action that can help to keep you and your neighbours safe.
