Tendring residents are being reminded of the district council’s revised opening times over Christmas.

Tendring District Council (TDC) says any urgent issues will be dealt with as usual over Christmas and into the new year as most frontline services will be maintained for residents.

TDC will be closing its offices from 4pm on Monday, December 24, until 8.45am on Wednesday, January 2.

In emergencies, residents can contact the council’s control centre 24/7 on 01255 222022.

There are also changes to waste and recycling collection days during the period, with no collections on Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Year’s Day.
