Services unavailable due to power loss - 12 January 2024

12 Jan - 4pm: The technical fault that caused the loss of power yesterday has now been resolved, and services are gradually being restored. We hope that all services will be operating as normal by Monday morning.

Once again we're very sorry for any inconvenience these issues may have caused you, and thank you for your understanding.

12 Jan - 9am: We continue to experience problems related to yesterday's power loss. This means we are still unable to answer phone calls this morning. Some of our online services remain unavailable, including the planning applications portal, job applications and our council meetings and minutes pages.

We hope to have a further update later today.

Thank you for bearing with us and we apologise again for any inconvenience this may cause you.
