05 April 2020
Walsall Council is to restart some essential highway maintenance activities from Monday 6 April. The workforce will be operating under stringent site rules and procedures to ensure that works can be completed safely and in accordance with social distancing guidance. Any works that cannot be undertaken in this way will remain suspended and those works that do proceed will be subject to regular review.
In the light of the Coronavirus (COVID19) pandemic and current social distancing rules, we have had to change how we deliver our bereavement and registration services in Walsall. To protect you and our frontline staff, service changes will be in place for the foreseeable future and will therefore affect:
- birth and death registrations,
- the number of people attending funerals
- notices for marriages and civil partnerships
- deferments of marriages, civil partnerships and citizenship ceremonies.
Walsall council is providing up to date information, advice and support for the business community
Walsall Council is to provide free car parking in on-street parking bays and all council owned car parks during the coronavirus outbreak. This allows people to park without having to worry about cost or time restrictions and helps reduce the distance people have to commute to work on foot.
In these difficult and trying times, the business community in Walsall have been putting aside their own concerns to keep our most vulnerable safe.
