As you will be aware we have been placed into Lockdown 3 until further notice. We continue to consider ways in which we can keep our customers and staff safe in the difficult times through which we continue to live. This is of great importance to us.
Caravan storage is in a low risk category and there is not, as a result, any need for the facility to be closed at this time. We must not, however, be complacent. The health and wellbeing of our customers remains, as always, our top priority and as such we continue with additional measures to minimise risk to all concerned:
We have received the following advice from CaSSOA concerning the latest lockdown:
What if a customer wants to retrieve their caravan / motorhome?
The government has categorised caravan / motorhome storage facilities as being the same as car parks, which mean they can remain open. It is CaSSOAs view that facilities can open and allow access for collection of caravans /motorhomes or to carry out urgent maintenance etc provided that social distancing can safely be maintained.
Day trips are unlikely to be permitted, in addition to staying at another home (including a caravan / motorhome) unless it for one of the reasons specifically set out in law, such as critical workers where required for reasons relating to their work. Customers should be reminded of this.
If you do collect your caravan / motorhome, please be reminded that permitted travel does not include visits to campsites, caravan parks or similar places, either for isolation or holidays. It is likely that these places will remain closed for the foreseeable.
What if a customer wants to access or collect an item from their caravan / motorhome?
This should be permitted provided that social distancing can safely be maintained. We remind you that access is currently only for urgent maintenance or to collect essential items.
Can a customer attend their caravan in order to self-isolate?
We remind you that it is vital that any persons showing symptoms however mild must continue to self-isolate at home (their place of primary residence) and not look to travel to their caravan to self-isolate.
The government guidance remains that essential travel does not include visits to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar, whether for isolation purposes or holidays. People must remain in their primary residence.
In addition, CaSSOA’s standard terms do not allow customers to occupy their caravan on their site.
We hope that all of our customers keep safe throughout the ongoing emergency and will emaerge full of enthusiasm for the holiday season which will still, we hope, lie ahead.
