Service disruptions and updates
Council services are facing increasing pressure due to high local rates of Covid-19, with a number of areas being impacted by staff absences at a time when we're working hard to support our communities through the pandemic.
We're doing all we can to minimise disruption, but the situation is moving quickly and could result in changes or delays in our services. Updates will be published on this page as they become available.
Monday 10 January
Birtley Library will close at 5pm, instead of the usual closing time of 7pm. Normal opening hours are expected to resume from tomorrow.
