Cork County Council is the local authority serving the people of County Cork
“A county that is prosperous, caring and proud, where the wellbeing of citizens and communities is at the core of everything we do and where our natural resources are respected and valued."
With the introduction of additional regulatory measures to minimise the spread of Covid 19 following the Government’s announcement, Cork County Council wishes to advise of further changes to its operations.
Cork County Council will continue to provide essential services and deal with emergencies; however all Council buildings will be closed to the public until further notice.
More than 120 Council services can be accessed online here. Queries will continue to be taken by telephone on 021 427 6891, by post and by email.
General information on Cork County Council services and a full list of contact details can be found here.
Cork County Council will continue to provide Homeless, Traveller and Social Work and HAP services.
Other Housing services such as maintenance, applications/allocations, RAS/Leasing and call out response for anti-social behaviour will be available in emergency situations only.
The online service www.motortax.ie will continue to operate. Queries will also continue to be taken by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Cork Motor Tax Office is closed to the public.
Cork County Council’s Planning Department will continue to accept and validate files.
Emergency Callouts with regard to road maintenance will be facilitated, while the Roads Winter Maintenance programme will continue together with the emptying of bins as well as essential public lighting repairs and traffic lights.
Cork County Council’s Civic Amenity Sites are temporarily closed with immediate effect. The Council’s ability to service bring sites has also been impacted upon and as such bins may fill more quickly than at other times. Customers are requested to store recyclable materials at home until the movement restrictions are lifted and Cork County Council can return to a full service offering. Please note any waste left on the ground at Bring Sites or left at Civic Amenity Sites when they are not operating is littering and will lead to prosecution.
