Swale Borough Council has written to holiday parks in Swale to confirm that they can remain open this winter due to covid.

As part of Tier 3 regulations, government guidelines state that accommodation such as hotels, B&Bs, campsites, and guest houses must close, but with several exemptions, including people who use these venues as their main residence.

This exemption includes holiday parks and the residents who live there.

Cllr Mike Baldock, cabinet member for planning at the council, said:

“We have contacted Swale holiday parks this week to confirm that they can stay open throughout their normal forthcoming closed season due to covid.

“As with the lockdown earlier in the year, the government have said that holiday and caravan parks must be closed for leisure purposes, but there are exceptions.

“This includes those who are unable to return to their main residence, are self-isolating as required by law, or would otherwise be made homeless as a result of the closure.

“We are following government guidance and will not be taking any enforcement action that requires any holiday parks in Swale to close during their usual upcoming closed season.”
