Caravan Parks/second homes

I believe Caravan Parks should be allowed to reopen for use by private owners of static caravans/lodges. This would be no different to being in your own home. I do not think touring caravans or tents should be allowed at this time.

Why the contribution is important

This would help with the mental health of people during this difficult time and social distancing could still be adhered to. For many a caravan/lodge may be safer than at home if their main residence is a flat. I think it is too soon for tourers and tents as they would require the use of shared toilet blocks.

    Only caravan parks for static vans should be allowed to open as all others have to share toilet and washing facilities so would not be safe to re-open them yet.

     I do not think that restrictions should be lifted on holiday homes or caravan parks as that will only encourage people to travel, with a possibility of introducing the virus to other areas. There is no good reason to lift restrictions on caravan parks or holiday homes at the present time.

    Don’t see any issue with people going to a second home.

    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.

    I believe private owners should be able to use their holiday homes as an extension of their own home as long as social distancing and safe practices are respected.

    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.
