Shropshire Council


Information for businesses

Whitcliffe, LudlowShropshire Council and Telford & Wrekin Council have joined forces to support the delivery of a safe and sustainable restart of the tourism sector, and are working with businesses and partners to support permitted visitor and outdoor attractions to reopen safely.  

With the latest easing of coronavirus lockdown measures announced by the government, Shropshire is preparing to safely welcome back local residents and visitors alike to the county's extraordinary culture and hospitality venues.  

It's a mandatory requirement for businesses reopening in England to complete a Covid-19 risk assessment to ensure government and Public Health England guidelines are met.

Shropshire Council and Telford & Wrekin Council are supporting the ‘We’re Good To Go’ standard developed by Visit England. ‘We’re Good To Go’ is the official UK mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow government and industry Covid-19 guidelines, and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and social distancing.

We've also developed a toolkit to support you in reopening your business in Shropshire.

Information for the public

Shropshire is preparing to reopen to visitors once again as lockdown restrictions ease. The county’s hospitality sector has been slowly reopening since Saturday 4 July, as have selected visitor attractions.

We strongly advise that you carefully plan your visit to Shropshire to make sure places are open, and to help us continue to protect our local communities.
