Ceredigion County Council wants to create safe, inviting towns for people to come shopping and to enjoy.

With social distancing requirements still being important, it is necessary to make adjustments to the towns for public health reasons.

Ceredigion has prevailed extremely well in its defence against the spread of coronavirus and wishes for this success to continue for the well-being of its citizens.

The coronavirus has not gone away and we need to have measures in place that help people visit shops and services in our towns safely and keep the rates low. The Safe Zones also allow businesses to continue trading outdoors.

The measures involved with the Safe Zones include widening of footpaths, dropping kerbs closure of roads, adaption to parking bays and areas for businesses to trade to allow people to maintain a social distance at all times.

Ceredigion County Council Cabinet Members will consider implementing two Experimental Traffic Regulation Orders in Ceredigion for the process of retaining selected parking and traffic flow elements installed temporarily in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

More information on the Experimental Traffic Regulation Orders in question is available on the Agenda for the Cabinet meeting on Tuesday 11 January 2022.
