Ringwood Neighbourhood Plan
Lots of people have opinions on how Ringwood should develop in the future.
Maybe you want to see more lower priced starter homes?
More cycle routes? More protection of our heritage?
Welcome to the website of Ringwood Town Council.
The aim of this website is to inform the public about the Council’s work, its services, the facilities available, together with information about the town.
Ringwood, in the County of Hampshire, is the Western Gateway to the beautiful New Forest, at a crossing point of the River Avon. For centuries it has been the traditional market town of the New Forest with its market charter dating back to 1226.
From 12 April 2021 some of the rules on what you can and cannot do have changed, but many remain in place.
You must not meet indoors with anybody you do not live with, unless you have formed a support bubble with them, or another legal exemption applies.
You can meet up outdoors with friends and family you do not live with either in a group of up to 6, or in a group of any size from up to two households. Meetings can take place in private outdoor spaces and other outdoor public places and venues that are open.
You should continue to:
- work from home if you can
- minimise journeys, avoiding busy times and routes
- regularly wash your hands
- use a face covering
- keep a safe distance from others
- let fresh air in (ventilation is important)
Full restrictions and updates are available on gov.uk: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/national-lockdown-stay-at-home
Ringwood Gateway has re-opened, but is operating on reduced opening hours and access is restricted to one customer at a time.
