Coronavirus: How will shopping on the High street differ?

  Temporary signage installed on Holton Road, Barry.

The Vale of Glamorgan Council has begun the installation of signage on High Streets across the County, as non-essential retailers are set to reopen from Monday.

Residents have shared images on social media of new signage spotted over the weekend in Penarth, Barry and Cowbridge.

It follows the announcement on Friday that the Vale of Glamorgan Council will begin re-opening of car parks at County Park and Coastal Resorts.


Temporary signs have been installed across the County.


In Barry, Penarth and Cowbridge, existing parking bays have been temporarily suspended to accommodate social distancing, with Socketed bollards to be installed along suspension areas.

One way systems for pedestrians have been implemented in all shopping areas to further aid in social distancing, with signage installed ahead of non-essential retailers opening on Monday.

Since the announcement on Friday that non-essential retailers are able to re-open, businesses across the County have shared how they are preparing for a return to trade and how they will work to keep their staff and customers safe.
