Open up touring caravan parks

Open up touring caravan parks .
We have our own toilet and washing facilities so dont nead toilet blocks to be open .
Social distancing isnt a problem we can be friendly and still be 2 meters apart.
Also follow the 6 meter rule where caravans must be at least that distance from each other.

Why the contribution is important

Keeps caravan parks open .
Gives people a different view instead of the same view every day .
Could be only travel in a 30 mile radius to begin with .

    Sorry but have to disagree, this type of activity promotes unnecessary travel and aid the spreading of the virus!

    As you would be in the area overnight, there would be an increased interaction with local communities and a need to access local (rural) services if you get ill. I think we should be a bit further on in the recovery process before being able to do so. Expanding the local area where people can recreate seems a better option for the time being as reliance remains on local services and any social interaction (shops, services) remains local.

    Open them when travel restrictions are lifted but with no facilities ie showers toilets etc only waste disposal this then gets it under a supervised situation otherwise you are going to get a load of and improper wildcamping

    Sorry bad idea 30 miles could be the difference between very few cases and a severe out break.

    This is a very low risk activity. Families are naturally isolated in their metal boxes! Local economies and businesses receive vital support.

    This is an utterly ridiculous suggestion at this early stage and increases the risk of spreading Coronavirus to remote areas that have perhaps dodged the worst of it. Assuming this is a serious suggestion it is also a worry about what some people think is acceptable as we all carefully come out of lockdown without increasing the infection.

    Not a good idea. A tsunami of people would be unleashed on rural communities. Previous poster says local businesses would receive support - this would mean interacting with the businesses (eg shops), so we would have an increase on demand along with an increased possibility of spreading the virus.

    An excellent idea. No risk to anyone from living in a caravan. It's the same as living in a house, and I can't see why folk panic about this causing any more harm to anyone.
