Council closes buildings over festive period

Leeds City Council is trialling a festive shutdown of buildings that are in low or no demand over the Christmas period as one of the ways of looking to save money. Non-essential services will be closed so as to reduce energy and building costs from midnight 23 December to midnight 1 January 2013.

Services with high demand over this period - refuse collection, street cleansing and traffic management - will not be closed Child protection remains a priority and there will be sufficient social work staff in place to deal with all enquiries and new referrals

Similarly the majority of Adult Social Care services will also remain open. a more detailed list of affected services in your area visit click through to the specific service page.
