The council’s customer relations manager, Mary Readman, said: “We apologise for any inconvenience, but have no alternative as this is vital work.

“It is only one day and we’ll be open as usual the following day, Thursday April 3.”

The office is open to the public from 8.30am - 5pm between Monday and Thursday, and to 4.30pm on Friday.
