The impact of COVID-19 is now being felt by everyone in the country so this is a quick message from SF Planning to ensure that we continue to provide the service that all our clients would expect whilst prioritising the health of our employees, clients, and the wider community.
In line with government advice all our employees are now working from home, so both our Cheltenham and Gloucester offices are closed to visitors.
Emails and all incoming calls (land-line and mobiles) will be dealt with as normal no matter the location of our staff. To clarify things for clients, you shouldn’t notice any difference with calls and emails. Please continue to email us as normal, all the contact details for our staff can be found here. If the matter is more urgent please call us, either on the usual numbers, or by using the contact details on our staff info pages. All our numbers will continue to operate as normal barring any minor user errors whilst we get used to the system!
With regard to meetings please consider holding meetings via our video services:
- If a staff member has a mobile phone listed here then you will be able to use that to video call via Facetime or Whatsapp.
- If a staff member does not have a mobile listed, or there are operational issues with Facetime or Whatsapp, then we have other methods to conduct audio and video conferencing. Please get in touch with the individual member of staff to discuss options. We are using Zoom for hosting conference calls. We are also able to share plans and documents via Bitpaper. Instructions will be provided.
We are postponing all site visits unless they are essential. We will endeavor to complete non-essential site visits as soon as we are able. In the meantime please send us photographs and videos of sites.
We also request that if you are looking to post anything to us, please consider email first. If that isn’t possible, please send post to our Cheltenham office only where we are still able to collect it. Until further notice there are currently no postal collections taking place at our Gloucester office.
I hope that explains our approach clearly but if you have any further queries at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me directly.
Managing Director of SF Planning Limited
