Re-open holiday parks and caravan parks

Re-open Holiday Parks and Caravan Parks to allow us fresh air and different walks. This can be staged with social distancing by Following guidance at the holiday parks (no gatherings out with family group, 2m social distancing, limiting numbers of caravans or camper homes at each site. Why the contribution is important Will enhance quality of life and give many people more freedom at minimum risk to themselves and the people living in the area. As well as being good for health and well-being it would help with rebooting the economy safely. This would also allow people who have not been able to get outside to get much excercise (live in a flat or house with no garden) to start to get out and feel better.

Why the contribution is important

Holiday parks and local communities ties are reliant on visitors business. Also, many people have already paid fees to their holiday parks and they are not receiving g any rebates even though they are unable to visit. Opening up the holiday parks safely would reduce or eliminate this friction. It would also be very good for the individuals health and well-being and it would be easy to socially distance to stay safe.

    Silly idea, encouraging the mass transit of people to these sites is clearly unnecessary.

    It will be great when we can do this. Need to ensure that it is done in a controlled way to prevent any spread of the virus and to ensure that locals are not disadvantaged or put at risk.

    Not yet. Unsafe. Holiday relaxation.

    While there is any possibility of a further surge of infection I would not be keen to re open caravan and holiday parks. Social distancing needs to remain a while longer and I don't think people would comply with social distancing once these were re opened. I understand this is making life difficult for park owners and those who have already paid for their holiday. Lives are more important.

    Absolutely not.

    Mobile home owners could use their van's, but general rental is probably not a good idea, too much cleaning inbetween rental putting people at risk.

    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
