Your city and town centres

What changes will I see in my town or city centre? 

We want you to feel safe as you start to return to normal life. Things might be a little different and we want you to know what to expect.  

Street marshals 

Street marshals will be patrolling our busy areas. They are there to keep everyone safe and reinforce social distancing rules. If you feel vulnerable they are there to help. 


We have installed signage at the entrances of our highest footfall retail areas and on our street furniture (benches, lampposts etc.)

We have marked the ground and pavements with social distancing markers. 


We have increased the amount of street cleaning in our towns and city centres. 


Markets – our markets are open across the district. You can find out when your local market is open here

Supporting businesses

We are working with local businesses to ensure they are supported to open safely. Our enforcement teams will be making sure that businesses are complying with the appropriate Coronavirus (COVID-19) measures.
