25th March 2020
News, Sherwood

In line with the latest Government advice, Newark and Sherwood District Council has closed more of its buildings and facilities to help people keep a safe distance and reduce the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19). From today (Wed 25 March), the following facilities will be closed to members of the public:

 

·       All play parks 

·       Castle House, Newark (DWP will continue to provide a limited service at Castle House for their most vulnerable customers)

·       Hawtonville Local Office, Newark

However, the District Council's Customer Services will remain open as normal to help residents with enquiries, prioritising critical enquiries, via phone: 01636 650000 or email: customerservices@nsdc.info

 

For customers with complex needs who are unable to use these contact methods, we will have procedures in place to provide services to them via their carer/ nominated representative on a case-by-case basis.


New bookings for bulky waste collection are also being suspended although existing bookings will continue to be collected. Green, silver and brown bins will still be emptied as normal.


District Council  car parks and the Newark Lorry Park will remain open as normal.

Building Control (which is provided via a shared service) will now only visit dangerous structures or other extreme situations and all site inspections have been suspended.
