Re-Opening Our Retail Areas Safely

Following the Government’s announcement that non-essential retail could reopen yesterday (Monday 15 June), Crawley Borough Council and its partners have been taking steps to make the town centre and neighbourhood parades safer for the return of shoppers and staff.


This document has been distributed to businesses and provides them with details about the council’s plans, as well as guidance and considerations for businesses to think about to ensure they adhere to the government’s latest guidance. It also reiterates that businesses are responsible for their own signage and queuing systems within and outside their shops.


The Council is reminding visitors to our retail areas to:

·       Follow social distancing guidelines

·       Pay by contactless where possible

·       Follow directional signage

·       Wear face coverings when social distancing isn’t possible

·       Be considerate and give way where paths are narrow.


These messages will appear on signage, floor stickers, the Queens Square digital screen, lamppost banners, social media, media releases and more. They are being rolled out across the town centre and council-owned neighbourhood parades. Officers are engaging with privately-owned parades to do the same.


The document will be updated as and when government advice changes. For further information please contact the Economic Development Team.
