This is not being done to encourage people to come to town centres at this time, but we hope it will be useful to residents now staying at home and that struggle to find spaces to park on the street.

It's not physically possible for us to lock up many of our parks and playgrounds – but we ask for your support in adhering to these closures.

It's now a priority to ensure we can administer the many government grants that are now available, but we are asking the public to patient with us while we do the work to put these arrangements in place. The daily announcements of new grants, whilst very welcome, bring with it complex processes and procedures which are not simple to put in place with limited resources.
We have already billed 144 retail... Read More »
