Recycling centres and county council country parks to remain open

Posted onPosted on 2nd Nov

Nottinghamshire County Council has today confirmed that following the new national lockdown announcement by the Government on Saturday, recycling centres, country parks owned by the council and public transport provision provided by the council will stay open and running from 5 November.

All 12 recycling centres across the county will remain open during their normal winter hours, which are 8am to 4pm daily. Strict social distancing guidelines will remain in place.

Country parks, including Rufford and Holme Pierrepont, will all remain open, including car parks, play areas (numbers will be restricted), limited take-out refreshments and toilet facilities.

All public transport provided by Nottinghamshire County Council, including out bus stations and dedicated school transport, will continue as before, with the same measures in place.

Coun Kay Cutts, leader of the council, said: “I fully support the national lockdown and it’s vital we all do all we can to slow the spread of Covid. I do, however, want to keep Nottinghamshire open and on the move where it is safe and Covid-secure for our residents.

“All our services will be kept under review during this period but the important thing now is that everyone plays their part by following the new guidance and rules in full to help us to get more control over the virus. Please continue to check the Nottinghamshire County Council website for all the information you need.”
