Update on public facing services and Covid-19

Published: 17 March 2020

Slough Borough Council has made the difficult decision to suspend some services after government advice for people to avoid unnecessary social contact.

The Venue at The Curve will be closed from today to help protect the public in the current public health emergency.

The registration service will continue to operate to record births, deaths and marriages however, their assistance with the European Settlement Scheme is suspended until further notice.

All other public buildings, including The Curve and MyCouncil, will remain open.

The situation is constantly being monitored and the council will continue to provide a responsible and proportionate response to the situation facing residents in the borough.

The council is also in discussion with our leisure strategy partners Everyone Active and housing partners Osborne Property Services Ltd about services and we will update residents about any changes if and when they happen.

Josie Wragg, Chief Executive, said the council has plans in place to deal with such situations and will continue to work hard to provide as many services it can to residents.

She said: “We are working in unprecedented circumstances.

“We are constantly reviewing what services we are providing and how that sits with the Government and medical advice.

“However, we are in a good position to keep services running and continue to support residents in the borough.

“The council is working hard to maintain provision in the critical services as the situation progresses so those who need our services and those who are vulnerable, are helped.

“We have made the difficult decision to suspend theatre provision at The Curve and one of the registrar’s offerings and hope the residents of Slough will work with us to ensure people stay safe.”
