While some travel restrictions have been relaxed, Sedgemoor District Council is asking anyone who is considering coming to Sedgemoor’s beaches or beauty spots to be considerate to our communities.

At the beaches and parks, there are no safety staff, beach wardens or lifeguards on duty.

Social distancing measures still apply and the council is asking all visitors to observe these for safety.

When visiting parks and beaches, you can only go with people from your own household, or one other person while staying two metres apart.

Play areas and playgrounds within public parks will remain closed.

In terms of food and drink, the majority of visitor facilities remain closed, apart from some takeaway services from a few premises.

Toilets are open, mainly to provide hand washing facilities, and there will be signage reminding people to socially distance.

The Berrow Beach access road gate will remain locked, but it is possible to walk onto the beach via footpaths and from the road.

Going on holiday and visiting second homes is still not permitted.

Campsites, holiday parks, hotels, bed and breakfasts and other holiday accommodation will remain closed, except when providing accommodation for specific reasons, such as for critical workers needing a place to stay for work.

Overnight stays in camper vans are not permitted.
