Exercise is still vitally important for people’s physical and mental wellbeing, so the government has said people can leave their homes for exercise as many times as they like and with no restriction on duration or travelling distance. See New information on what you can and can't do. We are aware residents continue to express concern about the amount of people continuing to drive to Perry Wood from all over the county and who ignore social distancing. Just recently there has been an increase in potentially dangerous behaviour by suspects trying to block roads with branches and small trees and in environmental damage.
The Parish Council consistently liaises with Swale Borough Council, who have responsibility for the management of Perry Wood, about this behaviour. We are represented at the Perry Wood Management Steering Group. We always report every incident of anti-social behaviour, crime and any other relevant incident of public concern to Kent Police and our Local Policing Team. A Police Report is provided to the each Parish Council meeting and included in the minutes. We strongly encourage our residents to report any suspected unlawful or anti-social behaviour to Police either through the non-emergency 101 facility or Report an incident to Kent Police online.
