Meanwhile, the Housing Team continues to manage a homelessness function and will carry out emergency repairs on council properties if the issue is urgent. Full social distancing procedures are being followed throughout.
East Suffolk’s Environmental Protection and Food & Safety teams will only respond to emergencies for the foreseeable future and the Building Control team will also deal with structural emergencies only where this is a safety risk to the public.
Councilor Steve Gallant, Leader of East Suffolk Council, said: “In these unprecedented times, we must follow the guidance laid down by the Government and I implore everyone in East Suffolk to pay heed to this incredibly important advice. Please stay home and save lives.
“We will however continue to deliver essential services to those who need us most and I would like to pay tribute to the hard work of our staff and partners who are putting the needs of other people first during this emergency.
