Please be advised that due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Council is working hard to ensure that resources are focused on delivering and supporting essential services. The Council has had to prioritise its resources into critical service areas such as public health, cleansing and social work and education. In line with government guidance, many staff across the Council are working remotely and so capacity and access to our usual computer systems and hard copy documentation is currently limited. You can continue to make requests for information to us under the freedom of information legislation. We will work on any such requests made and send our responses to applicants as soon as we can. We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented situation.
