Travel advice for the weekend

Alert message sent 15/05/2020 19:09:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

We are asking people who may tentatively be making their first steps towards travelling a longer distance to spend more time outdoors across the county this weekend to be mindful of the communities they visit.

As many facilities in more traditionally popular areas may be closed, such as car parks, toilets and other amenities, before setting off please make sure that the places you are visiting are in fact open and that you have everything you need, and when you arrive please make sure to park your vehicle legally and safely.

Not all public car parks are open yet, so where this is the case please be sure to park properly if you decide to stop there and not block any carriageways.

Whilst the Government is advising that we stay home as much as possible, we know that we have a number of great spots to walk, exercise and relax in and across Derbyshire and all we ask is that if you are thinking of travelling there this weekend, please consider that you can do so whilst still abiding by the full range of the new advice from the Government.

For more information on the new guidelines, please visit the Government’s COVID-19 website:

See your local council's social media accounts for more current information on accessing their services.
