Following careful assessment of the risks and mitigating actions which can realistically be achieved, we are now in a position to schedule the reopening of our playgrounds and outdoor gyms from Monday 13 July. However, it should be noted that it is not possible for the council to put in place significant parts of the government issued guidance, including staffing of play areas, implementing booking systems for visits, undertaking frequent cleaning and making hand sanitiser available for users. Advisory signage will be put in place at the sites, but the onus is very much on users to take sensible precautions.
