Advice and support on Reopening

Town centres prepare to get back to business

Carmarthenshire’s town centres are being prepared to welcome shoppers back after months of closure due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Carmarthenshire County Council is supporting traders and businesses to get ready to re-open when lockdown rules in Wales are eased on Monday, June 22.

Guidance and support for the re-opening of parks and open spaces

As many town and community councils are looking ahead and working towards the re-opening of facilities we are sharing our social distancing toolkit which may be of use to those looking at the re-opening parks, open spaces or public conveniences.

We’ve produced additional guidance below on specific topics to help you apply this 5 step approach to re-opening, as well as an FAQs section to answer any concerns you may have. We will continue to update this information, please let us know if there is anything you’d like us to add to our website.
If you require any further support or guidance on signage please email us on
