Concentrate on getting equality of opportunities not just rules

Open up parks, golf courses, school grounds etc to everyone who doesn’t have a garden for them to use as/when they like including picnics, sunbathing (but maintaining distancing) but people with gardens should not use them to enable there to be enough space for everyone else. If they want to walk/run they must use the streets which need more widely reclaimed.

Why the contribution is important

Being cooped up effects mental health. Some people are being treated as prisoners and only allowed out provided they keep walking, and then only for an hour. Others have the opportunity to sit/play out all day. That just not just.

    I agree about opening up space but I think it would be hard to restrict those with gardens. How would it be monitored?

    The streets and pavements are in many places not possible for visually challenged to use safely, especially if traffic increases. Psychologically for our mental health we need to see into the distance and to walk continuously if we can for an hour or more.

    This makes sense, but realistically restricting the use for people who have gardens would be too hard to enforce and not entirely fair.
