Woodlands, Parks and Open Spaces

A greener Rochford

Rochford District Council is about to change the way we manage our parks - Take part in our consultation to help beat Climate Change. 

We asked you, the residents to complete a short survey which will help us put together our plan of action. The survey is now closed, but you can still view the information about the plans on the www.parksfornature.co.uk website.

Most recreation grounds located around the District provide football pitches. Find out more about how to book football pitches online. 

Social distancing

From 19 July, social distancing guidance will no longer apply. This means that local authorities, owners and operators do not need to implement social distancing (2m or 1m+) in outdoor public places, and the public do not need to keep apart from people they don’t live with. However, local authorities, owners and operators may wish to consider that some may make a personal choice and limit their close contact.

Local authorities, owners and operators may also wish to consider that businesses still have a legal duty to manage risks to those affected by their business and will therefore take reasonable steps to mitigate risks they identify and decide which interventions are appropriate to adopt.
