Coronavirus (COVID-19):

latest information and advice 

Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, Newport Town Council has decided to take steps to try and safeguard both our staff and residents.

As such, the council office will be closed to all visitors until further notice.

It is our hope that this will help to limit potential contact with COVID-19 as much as possible.

Please note that although we are closed to visitors, the office is still staffed and working. You can still contact us online or over the phone.

Alternatively, our Councillors are available for contact by email or telephone.

We hope you all stay safe and healthy. See the links below for information on coronavirus and what you need to do.

Forthcoming Council Meetings 


Scheduled Meetings

In order to reduce the transmission of corona virus (COVID-19), on 16th March 2020 the Government issued guidance on social distancing for everyone in the UK.

As a result, all meetings of the Town Council have been cancelled. This is to reduce social interaction between people, and apply shielding to those vulnerable within our community.

During this severe public health emergency, Newport Town Council will endeavour to maintain and deliver its core business and local service, whilst protecting its employees, volunteers and contractors.
