Sevenoaks District Council will close its offices to the public from tomorrow, Wednesday 25 March, after the Government insisted people should stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives.
However, Council services will continue with staff still available to answer questions and to provide the support the community needs at this time.
Residents and businesses can still apply for services, pay their bills or renew a licence by calling the Council, visiting its website or by post.
Those who need to pay for a service in cash should call the Council to discuss their payment options.
Cllr Peter Fleming, Leader of the Council says: “Closing our offices to the public was not a decision we have taken lightly, but the Government has made it clear. We all should do our bit to encourage people to stay at home to slow the spread of Coronavirus. Our staff are still delivering the vital public services that will be needed now more than ever and reducing their potential exposure to the virus will allow us to help keep them safe.
“Although our offices are closed to the public, we are still here if residents and businesses need any help, support and advice or to apply for and pay for our services.
“Please also spare a thought for those vital public services that can't be delivered from home, including our refuse crews who continue collecting the District’s waste and recycling.”
