Gedling Borough - some car parks closing with immediate effect

Alert message sent 27/03/2020 17:49:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch in Nottinghamshire


Gedling Borough Council is to close several of its car parks from today to reduce the spread of the coronavirus in accordance with government and police guidelines on social distancing and how people should be exercising.

The car park closures will include Gedling Country Park, Arnot Hill Park and Bestwood Country Park, where the children’s play areas have already been closed in an attempt to reduce social contact. The government’s advice to stay at home and only go out to exercise has meant that the council has had to review its parks and open spaces services on a daily basis to decide if it is appropriate to continue.

The closures will apply to all visitors with the exception of disabled residents who may need to access the parks for health reasons. These visitors must display blue disabled badges when parking and must follow social distancing measures, as well as parking with at least one space between cars.

Any vehicles not displaying blue badge permits will face enforcement action and the new measures will be reviewed if Government guidance changes on the use of parks.

Car parks near town centres and shops will remain open as residents will need access to supplies and will need cars to shop.
