The global coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is causing unprecedented disruption to normal British life.

From the nationwide lockdown to the suspension or alteration of many services, a lot happened in a short space of time. Many people have questions or are unsure of what to do.

Lawley and Overdale Parish Council wants to try and help its residents through this time, so we are building this central coronavirus page. As well as national information, we are compiling information and links about local changes that you may need to know.

As per our office closure announcement, Lawley and Overdale Parish Council staff are mostly working from home, and the office is open on an appointment-basis only. We are still available for contact through our usual channels at all times, however, as are our councillors

If you can’t find something you are looking for here, please get in touch with us and we’ll do our best to help you.
