Gedling Borough Council closures to slow Coronavirus spread

Alert message sent 23/03/2020 19:15:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch in Nottinghamshire


Gedling Borough Council has made the decision to close all of its children’s play areas, ball parks, skate parks, cafes and public toilets from close of play on Monday 23 March 2020. This decision follows reports of high visitor numbers attending over the weekend and a number of visitors not adhering to social distancing guidance.

The council’s parks and open spaces will stay open for now but this decision is under constant review and if people fail to adhere to the two metre social distancing advice from Public Health England, the council will be left with no option but to close all parks and open spaces in order to protect those most at risk and the elderly.

The cafe at Gedling Country Park will stay closed for the foreseeable future.

The council is responsible for over 40 parks containing children’s equipment across the borough.

The council is also advising residents not to visit the council’s offices in Arnot Hill Park and to access online services instead or call the customer services team instead (0115 901 3901) to help reduce the spread of the virus. Residents should only visit the offices if they are unable to use the internet or phone in and it is an urgent request for help, assistance or support.
