News : Low-demand Council Buildings and Services Closed Over Festive Period
Leeds City, UK, Dec 25, 2015 -- A number of Leeds City Council buildings and services that have limited or non-essential demand over the Christmas and New Year period closed from midnight on Christmas Eve and will reopen on Monday, January 4.
The successful closure of services with little demand has taken place for the past three years at this time of the year when it is not essential that they are operational.
By closing non-essential and low demand services the council will make savings from reduced energy usage and reduced building costs.
However, council services with high demand will not close and staff cover will be in place to ensure all key frontline services are maintained, either directly-staffed or with emergency cover, depending on what is appropriate.
A number of services within child and adult social care services will continue, as will refuse collection services, with some changes to normal collection dates.

Street cleansing and traffic management services will also not be affected.
During this period the council will still be contactable through the council’s customer contact centre and through some of its one stop centres remaining open, except on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day when emergency cover will be available only.
A more detailed list of affected services can be found online which provides a whole range of individual services such as bin collections, leisure centres and emergency out of hours contacts for further information.
