03 Jul NEWBURY TOWN COUNCIL PLAYGROUNDS
Newbury Town Council have carried out a Risk assessment required under the COVID-19 Government Guidance for managing playgrounds and has concluded that the Council are not able, at this time, to comply with all of the requirements. In particular, the recommendation in Section 4, ‘Key principles for safely re-opening’.
This Council therefore would like to state that the 14 play parks that it is responsible for continue to be a risk for the spread of the Coronavirus by contact. We do not have the resources to reasonably mitigate some of the risks present and are recommending that play equipment that has not been sanitised and cleaned should not be used.
We will post notices at all our play areas to this effect.
