The Parish Council were informed by Staffordshire County Council last night that Chase Road will be closed over the weekend. The message received from Staffordshire County Council is as follows:
As you will be aware, Government guidance requires people to stay at home and avoid unnecessary travel, except for a very limited number of purposes.
As such we have been closing car parks and facilities across the country park, and informing people of closures and reminding them of Government guidance through press, social media and the website.
Unfortunately many people are still driving to Cannock Chase and not following social distance guidance. The police have been out today reinforcing the message but there are still quite a lot of people traveling to the site. We have therefore taken the decision to close Chase Road to traffic for the time being to close access to the parking areas along it.
Emergency services are provided with keys so can access in the event of an emergency. The road will still be accessible to walkers, cyclists etc
