Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Footpath closures

Footpath closures

The Welsh Government has introduced emergency regulations, Health Protection (Coronavirus restrictions) (Wales) Regulations 2020, that require local authorities to close footpaths and other rights of way where use poses a high risk to the spread of coronavirus.

Health Protection (Coronavirus restrictions) (Wales) Regulations 2020

Any person ignoring the closure of a path or place under these regulations may be asked or forced to leave and may be subject to a Fixed Penalty Notice of £60 with that charge doubling for a repeat offence.

This will remain under review and may change if areas are identified where groups of people are congregating and actively ignoring measures set out by the Government.

We ask that all members of the public follow the requirements for appropriate numbers of no more than one or two in a family party maintaining social distancing minimum space of 2 meters and utilise their local routes rather then travel to the countryside unnecessarily. Many footpaths and bridleways cross private land, working farms and in some cases are close to private homes. Please keep to the paths, keep your distance from landowners and continue to follow the restrictions and measures which are in place to protect you and others.
