Supposed re-opening of caravan park
The council understands that residents of the area are concerned about proposals by Parkdean to apparently re-open the site to visitors and owners in mid-May.
It is important to remember that the site in common with other holiday sites and homes has been closed by government legislation. It is illegal for them to re-open without a relaxation by the government of national lockdown regulations. The legislation is temporary and has to be reviewed every three weeks. This is why we are having 3 week lock down periods. However, it could easily be extended for a further three weeks and they will not be allowed to open. The government has not published an exit strategy, but presumably when daily deaths and infection rates fall to an “acceptable” level they will develop an exit strategy and start to undo lock up. They will not re-open everything because of the danger of a second peak and re-infections. The experience of other countries is that small local shops will open first and some offices – just local facilities. Places and activities where people gather will be the last things to re-open. Holiday accommodation that encourages the population to travel from one area of the country to another will not be among the first services to re-open.
We also understand that Dyfed-Powys Police are monitoring the situation and will take action if the park re-opens before the lockdown for holiday parks is relaxed.
