The council removed the restrictions to coincide with the national easing of Covid restrictions.  

Councillor Lorna Dupré, chair of the environment and green Investment Committee, said: “We would still advise residents visiting the sites to stay safe and follow safety guidance where possible.  

“We would also like to thank everyone for their patience and co-operation when visiting the sites since the start of the pandemic.”   

Drivers of vans and trailers will still be required to have an E-Permit to visit the sites, with permits registered by site staff on arrival.  

The flow of vehicles will continue to be controlled by staff at site entrances, but sites will now be operating at pre-Covid capacity.
