Coronavirus – Message from Elmbridge Council Leader Stuart Selleck

The Government continues to develop its strategies to combat this public health emergency and is calling on all of us to support their efforts to defeat this virus.
Our resilience as an organisation is being tested as we mobilise all our resources to provide services to our communities, not least the elderly and vulnerable. We are coordinating  our targeted response with the Government and all public sector organisations across the County including the voluntary sector. Our Business Continuity Plan is working as I and the Administration are working closely with the officers to ensure that we follow national guidance and communicate as quickly as possible our plans to the residents.

We are extremely fortunate to have such a dedicated staff, ably led by the Chief Executive, who are going far beyond what are their normal duties . They are working hard with initiative and imagination to address the exceptional challenges that we all face. We should always remember that we are a public service and our staff are proud and dedicated public servants .

Considering all of this, we have decided to cancel all upcoming Council meetings, including planning meetings.  We will make alternative arrangements and let you know how what these will be as soon as possible.

Please keep up-to-date with council services including how we are supporting the community at elmbridge.gov.uk.

My very best wishes,

Cllr Stuart Selleck, Leader of Elmbridge Borough Council
