COVID-19 Recovery Planning Guidance


Managing Scotland’s Parks and Greenspaces during Covid-19 July 2020

This document brings together guidance and advice from a range of sources. It is intended to help managers of parks and greenspaces to plan for and manage the temporary adaptations and interventions that are needed as the restrictions on leaving the home are gradually reduced and we move through the phases set out in Scotland’s route map. It is not 'official' guidance and should always be used alongside Scottish Government guidance and regulations in force at the time.

Working Practices for Landowners and Countryside Managers - May 2020
Prepared by the Visitor Safety Group (VSG), this guidance seeks to cover the key areas all landowners and countryside managers will need to consider and assess when re-opening and managing outdoor public access sites / attractions and associated indoor / enclosed spaces during COVID-19 restrictions.

This guidance should be underpinned by the regulations, guidance and advice from the relevant Government. The approach to lockdown and easing of restrictions differs in each devolved Country within the UK.

It is designed to be read in conjunction with ‘Managing Visitor Safety in the Countryside – Principles and Practice’ (3rd Edition).
