Council offices

Easthampstead House and Time Square offices will be open as normal from 8.30am to 5pm to the public on Christmas Eve, December 27, 30 and 31. They will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.

Housing and benefits team

The housing benefit team will be in the office as usual on Christmas Eve to help with enquiries.

However, in order for applications to be processed that day, you must come in to our Time Square offices by 3pm so the necessary work can be carried out. The earlier you come in the better the chance we have to get you what you need. The team will continue to give advice until 5pm.
