The Vale of Glamorgan Council has confirmed that it will begin reopening the car parks at Country Parks and Coastal resorts across the Vale of Glamorgan from Saturday 20th June.

As reported on the Visit Barry Island Facebook page, staff were spotted on Friday removing barriers to Paget road.

The Council has confirmed that public toilets at sites will also be re-opened.

Specific measures will be taken in these areas, including a one-way system on Penarth Pier, the installation of signage to promote social distancing and additional hygiene arrangements put in place within public conveniences.

As well as car parks and public conveniences being reopened in these areas, additional measures will also be introduced in the coming days.

Cllr Neil Moore, Leader of the Vale of Glamorgan Council, said: “From Saturday 20 June we will begin reopening the car parks at our country parks and coastal resorts, including Barry Island. Public toilets at these locations will also be reopened."

“These measures are being taken to allow local residents to use these facilities and to do so safely. The latest Welsh Government regulations and guidance continue to focus on staying local, and within five miles of your home.”

Two meter social distancing markers have also been put in place at Nell's point car park, to aid with social distancing at the popular seaside resort.

In today's daily press briefing, First Minister Mark Drakeford advised tourism businesses to prepare for a re-opening following the 9th July.
