They say they are "working hard" to allow people to attend important appointments.

They were told by the government that birth registrations and notices of marriage and civil partnerships appointments were able to resume from 1st June, having stopped due to the Covid-19 outbreak. 

Wiltshire Council are almost ready to reopen the services, but need to make sure that it is safe for visitors and staff. 

They say that they are in the process of putting the correct arrangements in place to make sure face-to-face appointments can go ahead.

When services resume, in order for them to stay in line with the guidance, meetings will only be available to people that are required to be there. 

Although, anyone who may struggle to do this can contact the council in advance to discuss arrangements.

Cllr Richard Clewer, Deputy Leader of Wiltshire Council and Cabinet Member for Corporate Services, said: 

"We really appreciate everyone’s patience while we make the arrangements to get our registration service fully back up and running. The safety of those visiting and our staff is our primary concern and we will not welcome back people to our buildings until we are fully satisfied we are ready and everything’s in place.

It will, of course, be a busy time when the service is back and people will have to bear with us while we get through the inevitable backlog."

A date for the return of face-to-face meetings will be announced soon.
