Re-opening of local businesses in Oakengates

Measures in place

The following measures have been put in place to enable social distancing so that businesses are able to reopen and the public to feel safe.

  • new two way system for pedestrians installed on the ramp up to The Place (which remains closed)
  • suspension of one parking bay outside The Mall, covering about four spaces (this is because of concerns about the narrowness of the pavement)
  • social distancing signage and graphics.

These measures will be reviewed regularly and we welcome your feedback.

There are a variety of free car parks nearby and we encourage people to use these as much as possible and leave the high streets free from cars to provide more space for social distancing should it be needed.
