Keep Torfaen safe - stay home and stay local when exercising

Posted on: Friday 8 January 2021

We know we have many beauty spots around the borough which people enjoy visiting, but there have been issues over the last few weeks which have led to requests to close car parks at our visitor attractions. We really don’t want to shut any of our car parks which is why we are asking everyone to think first before driving anywhere for exercise or a spot of fresh air.

Current Covid-19 guidelines about exercise are clear that you can leave home as often as you like for exercise as long as you do so from home and alone, or with members of your household. Exercise should start and finish at your home, and you shouldn’t be driving anywhere for exercise or leisure.

If we are forced to close car parks due to ongoing misuse, it would mean people who have genuine reasons for visiting these sites for fresh air and exercise would not have access to them. 

Please be considerate to others, stay safe, stay local and help keep Torfaen safe.
