Waste will still be collected from parks and from the bins around the city centre.

The Coach Park toilets will be available for public use, cleaned and inspected regularly. All other city centre toilets are closed.

The Information Centre is staffed during weekdays for telephone calls, but with limited capacity to answer calls. Residents are strongly advised to use the email address Shopmobility has now closed. Weekend calls are for emergencies only.

New guidelines at the Crematorium limit gatherings to five, who should be close or immediate family.
