Tewkesbury Leisure Centre prepares to reopen Monday 3rd August

Preparations are underway to reopen Tewkesbury Leisure Centre on Monday 3 August.

The leisure centre closed its doors on 20 March as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, the teams from Places Leisure and Tewkesbury Borough Council have been busy taking advice from Public Health England, following Government guidelines, and consulting with the trade body ukactive to implement lots of new measures to help keep colleagues and customers safe, ready for when the centre reopens.

When visiting again from Monday 3 August, customers will notice more signage encouraging them to keep a safe distance from others. Some activities will restart, but at a reduced capacity, so it is essential to plan ahead and book online, by using the Places Locker app or by visiting placesleisure.org/centres/tewkesbury-leisure-centre

The Places Leisure team will implement enhanced cleaning regimes and customers will be advised to use the cleaning stations and hand santiser before beginning any activities or using any equipment. A handy new film has been produced to help customers prepare for the changes.

Interested in Planning? Co-option Vacancy Details

In its role as a consultee, Tewkesbury Town Council has the opportunity to influence planning policy both at a national and a local level, as well as to analyse and comment on the potential impact of a wide range of different planning proposals in and around Tewkesbury.

Here, we have a unique historical built environment which it is our duty to protect, while at the same time promoting a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle for our parishioners.

As the planning system comes under pressure to change, in order to overcome the twin challenges of COVID 19 and Brexit, we invite members of the public to volunteer for co-option onto our Planning Committee, to ensure that we have the resources to continue to give informed and balanced responses to planning applications.

Committee meetings take place approximately once a fortnight and there are training materials available.

For more information contact the Town Council on 01684 294639 or email admin@tewkesburytowncouncil.gov.uk

Tewkesbury Playgrounds Update

Playground update – we are working towards reopening the Town Council owned playgrounds (Warwick Place, Derek Graham & Mitton) as soon as is it safe to do so.

However, they will not be reopened by Saturday 4th July.

For safety reasons, it is recommended that all playgrounds undergo a full operational inspection before they can be reopened and we do not yet have a confirmed date for this to take place.

Thank you for your patience.

Tewkesbury Borough Council to resume car parking charges on 13th July 2020

Parking charges in car parks owned and managed by Tewkesbury Borough Council will resume on Monday 13 July.

Charges were temporarily suspended on Tuesday 24 March in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, but as government restrictions are gradually being lifted, car parking charges will soon resume.

With most non-essential retail stores reopening on Monday 15 June, the borough council will continue to suspend parking charges for a further four weeks after this date to allow traders and shoppers to become accustomed to the new safety arrangements. Following almost 16 weeks of free parking, charges will resume on Monday 13 July.

The council is urging anyone parking after 13 July to use the Ringo app on a mobile device to avoid handling cash, and there is also the option to call the Ringo number to pay over the phone. This service is now free to use.

Another option is for shoppers to use the Paypoints in Tewkesbury and Winchcombe, where parking can be paid for using a contactless card. When using Paypoint locations, drivers must take note of the car park number, found on the ticket machines and lamposts.

Councillor Robert Vines, lead member for finance and asset management said: “We hope that shoppers and traders find the extended free parking useful as they familiarise themselves with the changes put in place to make our high streets safer.

“The charges will resume on 13 July, so in preparation, I would urge drivers to use the cashless payment system and download the Ringo app – this is the safest and most convenient way to pay. Other options are to call the Ringo number and pay over the telephone or use the PayPoints located in nearby shops.”

The council has also temporarily increased the number of parking permits available to help residents who need off-street parking whilst working from home. For details of prices and to apply for a permit, visit: tewkesbury.gov.uk/parking-permits
