Daventry District Council to close over festive period

Daventry District Council will be closing over Christmas and New Year from Wednesday, December 25 until Thursday, January 2.

Essential services, such as waste and recycling collections and street cleaning, will continue. The decision to close the council’s non-essential and back office services is in response to low demand for services during this period. Employees will take leave from their existing entitlement.

DDC will close as normal at 5pm on Christmas Eve, reopening at 8.30am on Thursday, January 2.

The civic offices in Lodge Road will remain accessible to visitors of Jobcentre Plus and Northamptonshire County Council’s Children’s and Young People’s Service, which will each operate different working hours over Christmas.
