Tendring Council maintains critical services over Christmas

Critical issues will be handled as usual around Tendring during the Christmas and New Year period as most frontline services keep running for residents.

Tendring District Council says it will be delivering essential front line services and dealing with emergencies over the Christmas period, but will be closing its virtual offices from 4pm on Thursday, 24 December until 8.45am on Monday, 4 January, 2021.

In an emergency which requires TDC’s assistance residents can contact the council’s Control Centre on 01255 222022, available 24/7. Waste and recycling collections will continue, with some changes around the bank holidays which are yet to be announced.

Residents can find updated information on TDC’s Christmas services web page, which has full details of seasonal changes to services across the authority at

Leisure centres in Tendring – including Brightlingsea's – have re-opened in line with the easing of Covid-19 restrictions. Covid-secure measures are in place at all sites, and leisure centre users are reminded they must book sessions in advance.

Masks must be worn until your activity starts (unless otherwise exempt), and visitors must adhere to social distancing, one-way systems and use the hand washing and cleaning stations. People should come dressed and prepared for their activity, with no changing rooms available for gym users and wet-side changing rooms only open after swimming.

The full range of leisure activities are expected to be available, though detailed guidance is still awaited from national sporting bodies, so this may change and will be regularly reviewed. As per regulations the spa and sauna at Clacton Leisure Centre remain closed.
