Stay at Home Plea From Council chiefs

Help us stay safe by staying home

Swansea Council is asking people to stay at home this bank holiday Monday to save lives and protect the NHS.

Cabinet member Robert Francis-Davies has recorded a video urging people not to travel unnecessarily.

He said: “The weather is due to be lovely but please stay at home wherever possible. I know this can be difficult but we all still need to do it.

“I thank everyone who’s observed government guidelines over the past weeks – including all of our tourism businesses. However, I also make this appeal directly to the small number of people who may be tempted to breach the guidelines.

“It’s critical that we all play our part in continuing the fight to contain coronavirus and, as a result, enable businesses and individuals to return to a more normal way of life as soon as possible.”



The council beach car parks at Port Eynon, Bracelet Bay, Langland and Caswell continue to be closed temporarily. The car parks at the foot of Sketty Lane and at Blackpill are also closed at present.

Cllr Francis-Davies said: “People shouldn’t travel unnecessarily or drive to exercise and they shouldn’t park illegally or irresponsibly near our closed car parks – in some cases this could hinder access for emergency services. Enforcement action will be taken where relevant.”

Rules on accessing Wales’ green space and beaches for exercise are clear: Stay local and use open spaces near to your home where possible; do not travel unnecessarily.
