All Herefordshire Council owned public play areas closed until further notice – In order to protect the public from the threat of COVID-19, Herefordshire Council has taken the decision to close all public play areas from Monday 23 March until further notice. The decision (record of decision attached) has been taken due to the unprecedented threat to Public Health posed by the outbreak of COVID-19, and will help to support official guidance about social distancing.
