City Council Leader, Cllr David Mellen, said: “The news that we can move onto Step Two of the Government Roadmap is welcomed as we can start to open up more council services to benefit our citizens.

“While it is important we reopen services, we know it is vital to do this as safely as possible to protect services users as well as our staff.

“Due to this, some services will have certain restrictions and it is vital that everyone follows these, as well as following safety messages such as hands, face, space and fresh air.

“We thank our citizens and members of the public for their patience with service reopenings and hope they understand the importance of following restrictions during this time. We hope during the next few weeks we can look to restart more services in line with the latest Government guidelines.”
