Latest Covid-19 announcement

This evening the government has announced a 4 week lockdown for England starting on Thursday 5 November.

We would like to reassure our residents that our cabinet, led by the leader Shaun Davies, and senior management team will be working over the weekend to understand the detail of this decision and how it impacts on local services. The Council leader and Chief Executive will be meeting with Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government tomorrow evening.

Further announcements will be made early next week about the local impact and what support is available. Council Leader Cllr Shaun Davies will also be holding a Live Q&A on our Facebook page later in the week. 

Many of you will have questions but at the moment we are not in a position to answer them so please await more announcements from Monday onwards. We did not receive any notification prior to the announcement earlier this evening and we will do all we can to support our residents, as soon as we are clear on the implications of the announcement.

PLEASE REMEMBER - until Thursday we remain in a COVID ALERT HIGH and TIER 2 restrictions still apply in Telford & Wrekin - for more information please click here
