Our Phased Approach to Reopening Plas y Brenin

By Jack Nicholl - June 19, 2020

Plas y Brenin closed to the public at 5.30pm on Friday 20 March, in advance of the lockdown measures announced by the UK Government on Monday 23 March. While we can't wait to welcome you back, the safety of our customers and staff is, and always will be, our first priority. 

We welcome today's announcements from the First Minister of Wales about the further easing of lockdown restrictions, in particular the lifting of the requirement to stay local, subject to conditions, on 6 July, and that self-catering holiday accommodation providers should prepare to reopen subject to the review on 9 July. 

These announcements allow us to start our plans for reopening the centre, which we will be doing in line with the five phases outlined below. For clarity, at time of writing we remain at Phase 1 - Centre Closed. 

The phases represent how we anticipate the centre will move from a position of being closed to the public, through to one of operational normality.

We will move through these phases in full compliance with all relevant legislation, and at an appropriate pace that ensures we have total confidence in our ability to deliver services safely. It is our belief that adopting a phased approach will allow us to anticipate, control, monitor and minimise operational risks arising from COVID-19 as completely as possible.

As such, these phases are not attached to specific dates; rather we will move through them as it is safe and legal to do so. Existing customers affected by the operational phases described below are being contacted individually to discuss their bookings with us.

To keep up to date with our reopening plans and how we will be moving through these five phases, please register for email updates below:
