Coronavirus information and advice

We are currently reviewing the revised guidelines received from the government regarding access to open spaces and reopening of some outdoor sports facilities. Our priority remains the health and safety of residents, visitors and staff and once we are satisfied that the required conditions and controls are in place we will make a further announcement.

Following advice received from Warwickshire Police to fight the Coronavirus emergency we have taken measures to safeguard the public. This has included closing a number of public car parks including Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre and Radford Road and cordoning off the Victoria Park skate park.

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 go outside alone or with members of your own household
  • Keep at least 2 metres apart from anyone outside your household at all times
  • Be aware that gatherings of more than two in parks or other public spaces have been banned and the police will enforce this
  • 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
