CALC Coronavirus briefing and FAQs (7A) - Council Services

A further update from CALC covering Council Services during the current Coronavirus outbreak.

Our updates aim to give your council the background information needed for the council/delegated officer to make reasonable and proportionate decisions for your community.

Central government advice is often changing daily and we will keep information given to you under constant review. This means that your council will also need to review previous decisions in light of new information, as it is important to remain responsive to the needs of your community during this time.
