Camp and caravan sites to reopen

There is absolutely no need for sites without Restaurant and bar facilities to remain closed , all service pitches are distanced and motor home or caravan users will still social distance where needed , people stay on sites all year round , so I don't see a problem opening sites now that the panic buying has stopped and time to get economy going , and start the new normal .

Why the contribution is important

Because the freedom of people has been taken , and each individual knows what to do in event of illness.

    Should never have been closed down in the first place.

    Where a site has touring pitches Motorhomes and Caravans should be allowed as well. Shared facilities could remain closed since modern campers and caravans have perfectly adequate facilities on board. Social distancing could be easily enforced.

    I agree totally. Static Caravans, touring vans and motorhomes have to keep far apart due to current fire regulations there would be little need additional measures for social distancing. Most modern units have their own toilets and showers, and therefore there would be little need to use any shared facilities. Indeed this type of holiday would be far safer than any other type of accommodation as everyone would be in their own box and using their own facilities.

    I support opening. Hard hit park owners and operators, and often wider rural economies, depend on seasonal income from holiday home owners. Over extending closures may have long-lasting and significant impact for companies and communities. No need to open bars, restaurants and shared spaces yet. As elsewhere, responsible behaviour and especially social distancing will be key.

    I can see no reason, with all required distancing measures in place why camp sites cannot open. High risk area is shared facilities but with modern camping equipment and vehicles etc this can easily be avoided. I dont believe they should ever have been closed and there ongoing use would have limited the mental health impact we are seeing by COVID lockdown measures.

    I believe people should be permitted to stay in their own private static caravan. In my situation my caravan is much more isolated than my home and I come into much less contact with other people there than I do in my house. It is totally self contained so I would not have to use communal shower or toilet blocks. It is also within 20 miles of my home so I would still be using the same main supermarket than if I were at home and also the same hospital should I fall ill so would put no more strain on the local area than if I was at home. This would help greatly with the mental ability to cope with an extended lockdown.

    No reason why this wouldn't work, caravans wither tourers or static on seasonal pitches already have there own facilities and are spaced out, would be easy to Social distance
