All Rushcliffe Borough Council managed carparks free until further notice due to coronavirus
Carparks managed by a borough council are free to use until further notice in light of COVID-19.
All Rushcliffe Borough Council managed car parks are free to use with time limits lifted as the authority chooses not to enforce parking restrictions, but asks all motorists to observe disabled bay rules.
They include the sites at:
- Bridgford Road, West Bridgford
- Albert Road, West Bridgford
- Gordon Road, West Bridgford
- Newgate Street, Bingham
- Needham Street, Bingham
- Bunny Lane, Keyworth
- Church Drive, Keyworth
- Radcliffe-on-Trent Health Centre
- Walkers Yard, Radcliffe-on-Trent
- Rushcliffe Country Park
The council said it would review its decision monthly, with signs now in place highlighting the arrangements for car park users and advice on observing social distancing in line with government guidelines.
This includes keeping a distance of two metres between others, one exercise session per day and leaving the house to buy essential goods only before returning home.
A Rushcliffe Borough Council spokesperson said: “We are aware some individuals still require the use of public car parks when purchasing essential groceries or attending medical appointments or healthcare professionals providing support at local facilities.
“Therefore we have outlined the facilities can be used in line with social distancing guidelines from central government, outlined at each location, whilst saving a small cost to motorists on each essential visit.”
