We also recognise that many of our residents and businesses have concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. Some of our more vulnerable residents are still shielding, whilst other residents and businesses are dealing with the effects of the pandemic on their financial wellbeing. We would like to reassure you that we are working with the Government, NHS, other councils, and community groups to keep people safe and restart the local economy safely.
