The Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC) has announced the reopening of a number of sports facilities and parks in the borough.

The reopenings come after council has considered how to safely reopen tennis courts, parks and skate parks in the midst of the coronavirus crisis.

The local authority says that the reopened facilities can now be used by members of the same household with adequate social distance if other people are present.

However, not all facilities could reopen because social distance would not be possible.

Councilor Karen Shore, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for the Environment, Highways and Strategic Transportation said: “I am sure many residents are happy that they can now spend more time outdoors, which will improve people’s well-being.

“This relaxation of restrictions means it is important that everyone continues to act responsibly, as most people have done so far. The infection rate will increase if people break social distancing rules and congregate in large groups in our parks.

“Please play your part and keep in mind that others may wait to use the facilities after you – others in your community may also need time to enjoy the outdoor facilities.

“We are also currently studying the orientation of the governing bodies with the clubs in the borough so that we can reopen other activities that take place in our parks, such as bowling and angling.

“Colleagues from our public health team are closely involved to ensure residents can use these facilities safely.

“This is a conservative approach which aims to provide a long-term solution for the use of these facilities, as the coronavirus is likely to affect us all for some time to come.
