Other advice and support
National lockdown - business premises closures
We are under national lockdown restrictions. To reduce social contact, some businesses will have to close and there will be restrictions on how some businesses provide goods and services. Businesses providing essential goods and services can stay open.
The government has issued guidance setting out the restrictions that certain businesses and venues in England are required to follow.
Information for key workers
NHS staff can park free of charge in any council owned car parks (with the exception of Regent Arcade car park). NHS staff wishing to use our car parks should display their permit available from their employer. Staff working in the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) have been allocated designated parking.
