Recognising the particular challenges for people living in places with little outside space options

People living in cities need particular support to allow them to use outside space. Travel limits will disadvantage them in particular so they need to be able to travel to family ir criends or more open less crowded spaces

Why the contribution is important

    Yeh, if someone with no access to a garden is sitting sunbathing in a park (and is at least 2m away from anyone else) I think that should be allowed. Or if a family want to drive out to a nature reserve out of the city for walk. Not sure about meeting up with family and friends though.

    I agree it must be difficult & do think under certain living conditions there could be exceptions made for the hour a day exercise with social distancing rules applied to be done further from home if it's sfer for all concerned possibly another issue that permission permits could be issued for people living in certain built up areas.

    And then there are those living in flats with no garden and no car, who can't travel without using public transport.

    I suspect many of them are the ones who sit out in parks on a sunny day - but not all. Most of the folk I've seen doing this are observing social distancing. Is there a case for making this acceptable as long as they aren't having picnics and barbecues? Perhaps. But if what's allowed isn't made clear and enforced to some degree then it all gets a bit confusing, causes disagreements and won't be effective.
