Open Owner occupied caravan parks in Owners local authority area

This would allow very limited travel, no increased burden to another Health Board and owners can practise social distancing or indeed isolation in their caravan.

Why the contribution is important

Safe way allowing lock down to be eased Improved mental health and more speakers to exercise

    I don't agree. I love my caravan and I am keen to get it out and go. However I feel that we could put remote and rural places under greater strain and spread the virus to areas that so far have avoided it.

    I agree as an owner of a caravan on a park within a 35 min drive. We can be socially distanced in our own vans or balconies as over 3m between vans. I for one wouldn't burden the area as I would take my own food and drink for the weekend or midweek break. The clubhouse on site can remain closed but for our wellbeing it would be good to get away just for a short while and enjoy different views and socially distanced walks

    Nope, Do not allow caravan parks to open, this will just slow down the whole process of getting back to normal.

    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 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.
