Bundaberg Regional Council will be removing tape and mesh from park bench spaces in time for the weekend as Coronavirus measures are lifted.
The State Government has announced from Saturday, restrictions will be relaxed on movement across Queensland so people will have more opportunity to go outside for enjoyment.
While Council will open up seating areas around the region, barbecues will remain switched off until further notice.
According to State Government directions:
- leave home for essential activities including:
