Close all UK campsites and caravan parks to limit the spread of Coronavirus

To close campsites and caravan parks in the UK due to limit the spread of Coronavirus. The government has already asked for no non essential travel, but small communities already struggling with the demand on resources are under immense pressure due to people from away coming to their holiday homes

This petition was rejected on 27th Mar 2020 as the proposed action is already occurring

The Petition Committee commented:
Since this petition was started, the Government has issued guidance on further businesses and premises to close. The Government has said that exemptions apply where people live permanently in caravan parks or are staying in caravan parks as interim abodes where their primary residence is not available.
