From Monday 13 September, the Epping Community Hub, based at the Civic Offices in Epping will be open.
Since the Civic Offices reopened in July 2021, Epping Forest District Council (EFDC) has given new and better ways of accessing their services, following the shutdown of more than a year in-line with Government guidelines on Covid-19 restrictions.
The new Civic Offices is much more than just a place for your district council services. It now features the Epping Community Hub which is a one-stop shop for you to access EFDC services and other local services for help and advice.

Following the Government’s announcement on Monday 12 July, we will still have some COVID-19 precautions in the building to help protect residents and staff.
In line with new guidance, we ask customers to be careful and cautious. We also ask that you respect the wishes of other building users by observing social distancing, if they request it. There will be hand sanitiser stations across the building for your convenience.
While masks are not essential after 19 July, we ask you to consider the needs of others when making your choice of whether to wear one. Finally, if you suspect you may be infected then we ask that you stay away from the offices and follow current guidance.
