The authority is not enforcing parking restrictions but asks all motorists to observe disabled bay rules.

They include the sites at:

– Newgate Street, Bingham
– Needham Street, Bingham
– Bunny Lane, Keyworth
– Church Drive, Keyworth

– Walkers Yard, Radcliffe-on-Trent
– Rushcliffe Country Park

The authority will review this 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.

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.”

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.
