Coronavirus information and advice

In line with Government advice we have reopened public toilets, skateparks and tennis courts, and started to open our play areas. Our priority remains the health and safety of residents, visitors and staff.

While all the district’s public parks and open spaces remain open, everyone from families with teenagers to dog walkers need to adhere to the rules and guidelines which have been put in place by the government to protect the NHS and save lives during this national emergency;

  • Stay local and use open spaces near to your home where possible – do not travel unnecessarily
  • Only meet up with up to 6 people from different households whilst maintaining a safe distance
  • Keep at least 2 metres apart from anyone outside your household at all times
  • If you have a garden, make use of the space for exercise and fresh air
  • Take hygiene precautions when you are outside, and wash your hands as soon as you are back indoors
