COVID-19 (Coronavirus): Council Operations

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus called coronavirus. Knutsford Town Council is following Government guidance in responding to COVID-19.  We want our residents and staff to be healthy and look after their well being.

Supporting We are Knutsford

The Town Council is manning the support line (0800 118 1692) from Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. Outside these hours the line is monitored by community volunteers.

We will continue to provide support and assistance to We Are Knutsford.

Events

The council has taken the decision to cancel the planned VE Day street party and service on 8th May. The Bunny Hop and April Makers Market have also been cancelled.

Council Offices

To maximise the safety of our officers, we are restricting visits to the Council Offices and aim to deal with enquiries by telephone where possible (01565 653929). We are not hosting any external meetings or groups and admission to the offices is limited. Some staff are working from home but remain contactable by email.

Council Meetings

We are suspending our meeting calendar for the foreseeable future. On Monday 23rd the council will be discussing a temporary delegation of authority to the Town Clerk to allow decisions which would ordinarily be taken at meetings to be taken during this period.
