Motion text

That this House recognises the fantastic contribution that holiday parks make to the local community; notes that holiday parks provide local jobs and due to their rural locations, many of which are in rural coastal areas with access to walking and hiking in nature, support mental and physical well-being for holidaymakers from across the country; understands that once the covid-19 lockdown has eased that holiday parks aim to open up using a three phase approach; further notes that that opening up can be started with owners visiting caravans since caravans are self-contained, caravan owners can adhere to social distancing measures and the majority of caravan owners come from two hours away or less; notes that that opening up endeavour should be supported by the Government, as soon as medical and scientific advice allows for it , due to the aforementioned contribution to the economy and well-being for holiday makers
