Coronavirus updates → Measures to take before facilities can reopen

We will be carrying out risk assessments across all of our parks, greenspaces and buildings to ensure the appropriate measures are in place to keep our residents and workforce safe before we fully open to the public again.

The parks have always been open, but the facilities, such as car parking, play areas and toilets, were closed to avoid mass gatherings and to prevent the spread of the virus in line with social distancing guidelines. Other areas such as council-owned golf courses, bowling greens and basketball courts will also remain closed for now.

We will keep updating residents, but for now these arrangements will stay in place while we review the latest guidelines alongside our priority to keep residents safe - see further details on parks and open spaces during COVID-19.
