Static caravan site access

Social distancing must be adhered to, but could be relatively straightforward for static home owners & seasonal tourers already onsite (but many didn’t make it pre lockdown). It may be later before tourers/motor homes are permitted unfortunately. Once lockdown eases & we are permitted to travel (even within a specific radius of home), maintaining distance could be feasible if communal & shared facilities were closed. There may be difficulty ensuring social distancing of playing kids, but ok if with own household-parents must supervise. Vans benefit from checking soon to ensure proper maintenance. Keen to return under ‘new normal’ arrangements.

Why the contribution is important

Van maintenance, promote sensible easing of lockdown, local economy recovery, mental health & wellbeing promotion

    Should be allowed, social distancing can be enforced and it will enhance the quality of life. Especially for the older part of the population.

    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.

    Where a site has touring pitches Motorhomes and Caravans should be allowed as well. Shared facilities could remain closed since modern campers and caravans have perfectly adequate facilities on board. Social distancing could be easily enforced.
