Adjustments for Ceredigion’s Safe Zones are planned for the New Year.

The key purpose of the Safe Zones and other measures introduced by Ceredigion County Council is to help protect our community’s health by reducing the risk of Covid infections. In August temporary traffic orders were introduced so that Safe Zones in four Ceredigion towns could remain in place for up to 18 months subject to regular reviews so that adjustments can be made.

The arrangements for Ceredigion safe zones for the New Year are as follows:

  • In Aberystwyth, Cardigan and New Quay the roads previously subject to daily closures will remain open.
  • In Aberaeron, the current safe zone arrangements will remain in place.

Caution must remain and ensure there continues to be appropriate measures in place to safeguard people in our County.

These adjustments take into account a wide range of information including feedback received, the time of the year and the national lockdown.

Data will continue to be monitored so that Safe Zone implementation is kept under review. It is likely that the above changes will be in place until 01 February 2021.

More information can be seen on the Safe Zones web page.

The safe zones are in line with Ceredigion County Council’s Winter Strategy to protect the health and wellbeing of our most vulnerable and to enable the local economy to survive the winter months.
