The Council Offices on Strand Road in Derry and Derry Road Strabane will remain closed to the public in line with regular Bank Holiday arrangements. The Guildhall, Tower Museum and Alley Theatre will also close.

In relation to Births, Deaths and Marriages, the Registrar's Office will remain closed with an on-call service in place for the registration of deaths.

Bin collections will continue and householders whose bins are collected on a Monday are asked to leave their bins out for collection as normal.

Larger Recycling Centres including Pennyburn, Strahans Road, Strathfoyle, Glendermott Road, Claudy and Eglinton will remain open, while smaller sites will be closed.

Street cleansing will operate on a skeleton basis in the City Centre.
