Coronavirus: ABC Council cancels all ‘non-essential services’ until further notice

There will also be a 'reduced level' of essential services operating from Tuesday

Registrar-led weddings and civil partnerships in Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon have been cancelled until further notice.

Both have been identified as “non-essential services” and, as such, have been put off.

ABC Council has said it in the interest of residents and staff a “reduced level” of essential services will operate from Tuesday.

These include refuse collection, recycling centres, registration of births and deaths and burials.

But non-essential services to be suspended until further notice include environmental health, building control, planning services, weddings and civil partnership ceremonies and notices of marriage.

An ABC Council spokesperson said: “Council will endeavour to ensure that normal services will resume as soon as practically possible.”
