- Residents will be able to access many services, but during the weekend the council recommend checking leeds.gov.uk for all alternative contact details. Prior to that they are also publishing details to bit.ly/leeds1819july.

The work is a major upgrade to their existing network and will improve customer service. Maintenance is due to run throughout the weekend.

Coun James Lewis, Leeds City Council’s executive member for resources and strategy said: “This essential maintenance work will represent a major upgrade to our current systems that will mean residents will have better access to the services they need.

“We hope that we will be able to keep any disruption to an absolute minimum while we carry out this work but we would ask that residents bear with us and use the temporary contact details provided over the weekend.”

Full services will be provided wherever possible with minimal disruption.

Leeds City Council apologise for any inconvenience.
