Herts County Council Town Centre Changes

Posted: Fri, 22 May 2020 15:30 by Claire Graham

Hertfordshire County Council, in partnership with District and Borough Councils, will be changing the way that many town centres look from this weekend (23 May 2020) to support the public to safely socially distance. More »

This is part of the Covid-19 recovery effort by Hertfordshire, and although being led by Public Health, the changes to the town centres are designed to support residents, businesses and families to remain safe as Central Government allows high streets to reopen in a phased and gradual manner.

Watford, Bishop's Stortford, Borehamwood and Hertford will be the first to see the safety measures, such as closing the road off to traffic, removing parking or narrowing of roads, to help pedestrians. We have created a series of maps which will show you what changes are being made to each road in the various towns.

Then, from Tuesday (26 May 2020), safety measures will be implemented at a further eight locations - Ware, Radlett, Royston, Hitchin, Knebworth, Harpenden, St Albans and Welwyn.

As more people are returning to work and retail operations gear up from June, Central Government has encouraged all Highways teams across the country to take action to help the public socially distance.

Detailed considerations have also been given to the need for access for local residents, public transport, emergency services, deliveries and accessibility for the disabled. » Less

Hertfordshire County Council announces expansion of lifestyle support services

Posted: Fri, 15 May 2020 12:08 by Claire Graham

Hertfordshire County Council, in partnership with Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group and East and North Hertfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group, is expanding its weight management and lifestyle support service for families across Hertfordshire. More »

Beezee Bodies, an organisation that helps local communities adopt sustainable healthy habits, will continue to deliver the service.

Councillor Tim Hutchings, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Prevention, said: "Our environment and society has changed dramatically over the last few decades and we recognise that it can be challenging for families to maintain a healthy weight.

"We need to do all we can to support families and therefore are pleased to announce that we will be expanding our family healthy weight service from September 2020, offering information and resources to anyone who would find it useful, as well as support for those who need it."

The Beezee Bodies team of behaviour change experts and nutritionists will provide free support to help families develop healthier lives by helping them learn to cook healthy family meals together, try new foods and enjoy fun activities to get everyone moving.

Beezee Bodies Chief Executive Officer, Stu King, said: "We pride ourselves on being agile, so right now we're focused on how we can support families in Hertfordshire to stay healthy through the COVID crisis.

"Our support is relevant to what is going on nationally and what people need locally, so when we move into the next phase and begin to come out of lockdown, our support will evolve to reflect that."

During the Covid-19 crisis, a BeeZee Live service is available, streaming lifestyle advice straight to your home.
