Welcome to Newport Parish Council

NATIONAL LOCKDOWN: STAY AT HOME in effect

4-step plan

A 4-step plan (or roadmap) to ease lockdown restrictions in England was announced on Monday, 22 February 2021. We are now in step 2 of the plan.

There will be a minimum of 5 weeks between each step to limit the risk of infections and hospitalisations, with at least 1 week’s advance notice of the changes in restrictions.

Restrictions will be lifted across the whole of England at the same time with no return to regional tiers.

Until all restrictions are eased, we should continue to follow National Lockdown: Stay at home guidance

You can contact the Parish Clerk by sending a message via this website,  or pop along to one of the meetings. There is a 30 minute public forum at the start of each meeting where you are welcome to air your views.
