Town Centres – relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions

Changes to some of the lockdown restriction in Wales were announced last week meaning some shops and businesses are now allowed to open.

Flintshire County Council has introduced some changes to the main shopping areas across the County to support this reopening, including:

  • – A temporary 20mph speed limit to make it easier for pedestrians to cross the road to achieve social distancing.
  • – Signage reminding people of the need to observe social distancing, with extra signs where pavements are narrow.

The Council will monitor the reopening and may take additional steps to keep people safe, such as:

  • – Where shop queues are making pedestrian flows difficult they will work with the operator to try to manage this.
  • – If pavements in some locations are too narrow to support social distancing they may introduce one way flows or use parking bays as pavement to create additional width.

A liaison meeting will be held for each town in order to get feedback from local stakeholders about any other action that may be needed. Connah’s Quay’s meeting is on Tuesday 30th June so if you have any feedback then please contact the Town Clerk by email

Alternatively you can email

For general queries or concerns then please use the Flintshire County Council Contact Centre or 01352 752121

More information for businesses is available on the Flintshire County Council website.
