Welcome back to The Rugby Town

Rugby town centre reopened for non-essential shopping on Monday 15 June.

Rugby Borough Council and Warwickshire County Council have been working to make sure that it is a safe and pleasant environment for shoppers.

While the Friday and Saturday markets are back up and running, other non-essential shops will reopen provided they can do so safely. The priority is to create a safe shopping environment and support Rugby town centre businesses.

Please expect the town centre to be different and respect the measures designed to help maintain social distancing.

Not all non-essential shops are reopening immediately but may be providing additional services either online or via telephone. Some shops are offering appointment systems for a one-to-one approach or delivery services and may need to be contacted in advance.

To assist residents and businesses with social distancing, there will be key changes to the road network around the town centre allowing more space for pedestrians and cyclists.

The changes include a temporary one-way system around North Street, Church Street, Clifton Road and Hillmorton Road and restrictions on on-street parking. The town centre taxi rank will be relocated from the westbound side of the road to the eastbound side.

To compensate for the reduction of on-street car parking, additional disabled parking bays have been allocated at North Street car park.

Are you walking or cycling into the town centre? You can find the locations of handy cycle racks and other useful information by downloading the free Rugby App.
