Coronavirus update, 23 March 2020: play areas, public toilets and Southwater multi-storey car park closures
With immediate effect and until further notice, we are closing all council-owned play areas, and town and parish councils are closing public toilets at Ironbridge Gorge, Newport, Madeley, Dawley & Wellington. Southwater multi-storey car park will also be closing from today.
These closures are to help stress to people the importance of social distancing as set out by the Government and help to reduce the spread of coronavirus.
Parks and green spaces are still accessible so that people can exercise, however it is vital that people follow the Government’s guidance and stay at least 2 metres apart. Please do not congregate in large groups.
You should be staying in your homes as much as you can and avoid social contact wherever possible. We will keep this under review, particularly if people do not follow social distancing advice.
