Statement from Wokingham Borough Council regarding the Sandford Lane entrance to Dinton Pastures
Despite the car park closures, a high number of people are continuing to ignore Government instructions and are making unnecessary journeys by driving to Dinton Pastures. Furthermore, cars are parking precariously along Sandford Lane and in some cases blocking emergency access to site.
We are regrettably left with no option but to take further steps to try and prohibit non-essential travel. We have now closed off the pedestrian entrances to Dinton Pastures Country Park along Sandford Lane, however the Public Right of Way and other pedestrian entrances will remain open. This closure is in place to reduce temptation for those people who insist upon driving to Dinton as a destination day, morning, or afternoon out.
By ignoring guidance you are putting lives at risk. Stay Home. Protect the NHS. Save Lives. Thank you.
