COVID-19: Road Closures

Mendip District Council have been working with the County and Parish Councils to enable the safe reopening of our businesses in Mendip with sufficient space for social distancing.

Working together, we have considered the places where the space is limited, and are trialling immediate interventions on some of our Highways. The temporary changes, are regularly reviewed and may change quickly.

The current active interventions:


From 22nd June temporary closure of Market Place, Palmer Street and King Street except for access for deliveries and cyclists


From Thursday 18th June temporary closure of Market Place and a small section of the lower High Street with access only for deliveries and cyclists.
