Covid-19 footpath closures

The Welsh Government has introduced emergency regulations, (The Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (Wales) Regulations 2020), that require local authorities to close footpaths and other rights of way where use poses a high risk to the spread of coronavirus.

There are currently no closures in the County Borough of Wrexham.

All public rights of way in the County Borough presently remain open for the public to use. We ask that all members of the public follow the requirements for social distancing and use their local routes rather than travelling to the countryside unnecessarily.

Many footpaths, bridleways and byways cross private land, working farms and in some cases are close to private homes. Please keep to the paths, keep your distance from landowners and continue to follow the restrictions and measures which are in place to protect you and others.

The closure or otherwise of paths will remain under review and may change if areas are identified where groups of people are congregating and actively ignoring measures set out by the government.
