Fareham Civic Offices to open by appointment only

While there has been some relaxation in Government restrictions for retail and commercial businesses, the Council’s Civic Offices in Fareham will remain closed to visitors for now.

Some Council employees are starting to return to the offices instead of working from home, and extensive measures are being put in place to enable the Civic Offices to open to customers by appointment from 22 June.

It will be possible for individual appointments to be arranged in a small number of special cases in the Civic Offices, but these are likely to be kept to a minimum level for the foreseeable future.

Anyone who needs the help of the Council should contact them by telephone in the first instance. The Council will arrange the delivery of items that might ordinarily have been collected from the Civic Offices, such as garden waste refuse sacks.

The Council is working hard to ensure that the measures being put in place to enable the Civic Offices to be opened to the public again in the future will keep Council employees and visitors safe.

Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Seán Woodward, said: “We are not yet in a position where we can open the Civic Offices to the general public. Some Council officers are starting to return, but the building is not yet ready to receive visitors.

“We can still provide all of our services and the items that might have been collected from the Civic Offices to anyone who needs them, and if there are issues that need a face to face meeting then we can make a special appointment. Anyone who needs our help can phone us.

“We are putting measures in place to ensure that we can keep the public and Council employees safe which will enable us to open the Civic Offices to the public again. But we are not ready to do that yet.”
