Council services:

Following the latest government Coronavirus advice, which includes minimising social contact, Gosport Borough Council is taking the sensible precaution to protect the public by reducing non-essential council services. The decision has been taken to close Gosport Borough Council managed buildings. Our duty of care to residents remains our main concern, which is why we're focusing attention on keeping essential services going.

This means our priorities are: Continuity of care, Supporting vulnerable people, Maintaining the local economy
