From today (Thursday 17 September) vans and most trailers will be able to return to the site as they had prior to Covid-19. Like neighbouring authorities a booking system for the site remains in place to manage capacity, reduce waiting times and traffic congestion and keep everyone safe. Additionally the number of available slots has been increased, providing a further 448 slots a week. 

Cllr Charles Royden, Environment Portfolio holder said: “Our top priority is the safety of everyone using the site. While we are not able to return to complete normality we are continuing to monitor the site and guidance closely so that we can make changes like these which will increase access for local residents.”
