Working closely with local partners we are responding to and minimising the impacts of COVID-19 on our communities. Our aims are as follows:

  • To protect the wellbeing of people in the borough
  • To protect our workforce, including councillors and volunteers
  • To maintain the critical services which people rely on
  • To communicate effectively to our staff, and to the wider community
  • To make sure we are visibly leading our communities
  • To use the powers available to us to help manage and mitigate impacts
  • To protect and maintain democracy and lawful decision making
  • To support recovery and the return to a new normality at the earliest opportunity
