Seascale amenity update
The latest relaxation in the lockdown procedure means local amenities can be opened to the public. However, there are still restrictions and the government guidelines require a full risk assessment to be carried out. Such an assessment has been carried out for the play areas. See link below.
Update: The library services re-opening status and process report.
Re-opening is occurring in 3 phases; it is currently at phase 2. Only 6 of the main libraries were opened in August, the library service is proposing to open another 12 of the smaller main libraries. Smaller branch libraries, such as Seascale are in phase 3. Opening is based on a risk assessment check list and there are 5 essential requirements, such as track and trace etc, some of these requirements are mandatory, before a library can re-open. In this partnership the library services will provide signage, the necessary infrastructure and essential advice. Once all this is in place Seascale library will open along with all the similar libraries. At present, it is not possible to provide a re-opening date, but it will open a soon as it possibly can. If Seascale library opened prior to the recommended process, it would receive no support from the library service. To ensure necessary requirements are met, it is essential to have this support. The Parish Council will purchase Perspex screens and hand sanitizers will be installed, rather than just having a bottle of sanitizer ‘by the door’.
The Parish Council acknowledge this continued delay is frustrating, but assure users it is working to re-open it as soon as possible.
The Sports Hall will be opened to user groups subject to conditions, please see attached
Latest government update: The Sports Hall will still be able to cater for more than 6 users at one time, provided all the existing restrictions are conformed to.
