Services reopen as lockdown comes to an end

Council services and facilities have reopened across the Clarence Valley following the announcement that stay-at-home orders are lifted.
There will still be restrictions in place at all of our indoor facilities, with mandatory mask wearing and check-in a standard requirement of entry. Strict limits on capacity will also be in place.

Services and facilities set to resume normal operating hours from last Saturday include:
• Landfill services
• Libraries
• Grafton Regional Gallery
• Swimming pools
• Playgrounds
• Outdoor exercise equipment
• Holiday parks
• Treelands Drive Community Centre
• Pound Services

From Monday 13 September, our customer service team will also be fully functional in Maclean.
A second customer service office has been set up at our Rushforth Rd Works Depot due to the closure of our temporary office in Victoria St, Grafton. However, we ask that customers take advantage of our online and phone services where possible before making a visit, due to space limitations.
Clarence Valley Council General Manager Ashley Lindsay said the community was looking forward to getting back to a sense of normality.
“We do need to be mindful of what is happening in other regions and ask people to adhere to ongoing restrictions in order to keep our community safe.” He said.
“With vaccines readily available across in the Clarence Valley, we are also encouraging people to book an appointment to get vaccinated.”
