North Somerset Council announce Esplanade re-opening
News - 29 October 2020
Following a comprehensive review of temporary Covid measures, North Somerset Council (NSC), the landowner of the Lake Grounds, has today (Thursday 29th October) re-opened the Esplanade to vehicles.
NSC closed The Esplanade in May to provide a safe space for social distancing. Portishead Town Council is pleased with this outcome after months of closure and many requests for its re-opening.
NSC has also announced they will be installing lockable gates at either end of the Esplanade. The gates will be installed in the open position and will provide the opportunity to close the Esplanade for events, as well as for high tides which are currently managed using costly temporary barriers. NSC expects the gates to be installed by early December.
