Additional Covid-19 measures put in place in Cleethorpes from today
Additional changes to the Covid-19 measures on Central Promenade in Cleethorpes will be put in place from today.
The Council and its regeneration partner, ENGIE, put measures in place on Monday to encourage pedestrians to social distance whilst out in Cleethorpes in the wake of the lockdown restrictions easing.
These measures included road closures for traffic, whilst maintaining access for blue badge holders.
After monitoring the measures, North East Lincolnshire Council have put additional measures in place to “encourage people to enjoy the seafront safely”.
The area of Central Promenade between Sea Road and Sandcastles gift shop will be restricted to pedestrians and business traffic, while Blue Badge holders will still be able to access Central Promenade via Brighton Street slipway, but will not be able to access the entire Central Prom.
Under normal circumstances, Central Promenade has 12 dedicated Blue Badge parking bays. Under the new measures, this has been increased to 50.
A statement from the Council reads: “The measures have been put in place to support existing COVID-19 measures and encourage social distancing.
“The Council and its regeneration partner, ENGIE, will continue to review the measures in place and work with local businesses to support them and the wider economy, balancing this with the needs of public health and safety by following the guidance set by Public Health who are funding these temporary measures for the North and Central Promenade.
“People are being urged to enjoy the resort in a safe way to protect themselves and others.
“Those spending time in Cleethorpes, and along the seafront, are reminded to adhere to Government guidance by regularly washing or sanitising their hands, keeping a distance from others not in their household or support bubble, and wearing a face covering when required to do so.”
