City Council services affected by national strike

Service disruption: City Council advise residents to check which services are going to be closed on Wednesday.

The City of Lincoln Council are warning that a number of their services could be affected by November 30’s national strike action.

The Wednesday industrial action will see over two million workers from the public sector striking in order to try and protect their pensions.

Already a number of schools will be closed for the day, but the strike will affect more than just schools.

While the council is not sure what the impact will be until the day, it does believe that bin collections, street cleaning, grounds maintenance and leisure centres will all operate as normal.

Residents should still put out their bins in the morning as usual.

Council-owned car parks will also be open for use, except at Hartsholme Park which is “likely” to be closed. Some public toilets will also be out of action, and so will the crematorium.

The is a possibly that City Hall will also be closed to the public on Wednesday, so the council is advising people to only call if it is an emergency on the main switchboard (01522 881188).

Emergency council house repairs should be reported as usual on 01522 534747 and someone will respond as soon as possible. The Lincare Control Centre for vulnerable residents will also be running as normal.

The council is apologising for any inconvenience the strike may cause.
