Following the First Ministers announcement on Friday 19th June that non-essential shops in Wales could reopen from Monday 22nd June. It was essential for Monmouthshire County Council to act fast and provide emergency precautionary measures to not only support this decision, but also allow people to return to our town centres and villages safely, whilst maintaining social distance.

Within Tintern, the Authority has arranged for an area wide 20mph signed only zone to be implemented as per the attached drawing. It is hoped that the reduction in speed will encourage pedestrians, cyclists and visitors to return to this historic and beautiful settlement within Monmouthshire and shop safely. It is also considered that this will provide a safe environment for all road users.

Please note that the Authority is aware of the need to return to site to bag over the existing 30mph signs which are still present within the Zone. As such, this will be done as soon as possible to ensure motorists are not provided with confusing messages.

The emergency order will remain in operation for a period of 21 days in order to allow the Authority to assess the effectiveness of the measures, with a view to provide this on a more permanent basis, albeit as a temporary order which can last up to a maximum period of 18-months.

As shops and businesses continue to open, it may also be necessary to amend or add to the restrictions mentioned above to manage the ever evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This notice will expire on 16/07/2020
