District Council continues to urge visitors to stay away from the Lincolnshire Wolds and Coast

 East Lindsey District Council has asked visitors not to rush to the Lincolnshire Wolds and Coast following the Government's updated travel advice.

Councillor Craig Leyland, Leader of East Lindsey District Council, said: "On Sunday the Prime Minister announced a number of changes to the lockdown measures, including the news that, from Wednesday (13 May), people will be able to travel for exercise. I know that this will have left many thinking about travelling to our District, in particular the Wolds and Coast. Both locations do provide open spaces for exercise but for the time-being we are asking people not to rush to visit the area - car parks are closed and tourism businesses such as caravan parks, hotels, bed and breakfasts, restaurants and attractions are all closed. Our priority continues to be limiting the impact that Coronavirus has on our communities and our vulnerable residents and in line with Government guidance we'd encourage people to stay at home as much as possible to help save lives. You can do this by giving us time to help prepare the district to safely receive visitors again. We are working on measures, including things like updated car parking information, to ensure that people who visit East Lindsey can do so in the safest manner possible. For now we ask that everyone who lives in the District, and those who choose to visit, to continue with social distancing, to act responsibly and to stay safe."
