Birmingham City Council updates

Birmingham City Council’s  coronavirus advice website continues to be updated.  In addition, you can sign up to receive email updates.

If you click on the Affected Council Services you will see that one change is that all the tips (Lifford Lane, Tyseley etc) have been closed until further notice and all places in parks where the ability to stay 2m apart might be compromised have been closed.  Garden waste will still be collected but it will be mixed in with general waste in order to keep services reliable.

A message has been sent from Birmingham City Council (click to see the full text). The letter concerns “the impact COVID-19 is having on the economy. Birmingham City Council would like to ensure our residents are fully aware of all of the financial support which is being made available through the Government…….. We will issue a weekly update with details of any grants or relief which business can apply for with links to the relevant sources of information.” There are sections in today’s message for employees and the self-employed and about benefits and financial support.
