Cornwall Council has urged people against thinking of travelling there on holiday over the Easter holidays. They instructed that although the “stay at home” legal order is being replaced by “minimise travel” on March 29, holidays to Cornwall are still banned and there will be consequences if this is breached.
In Thursday’s weekly public briefing, the Cornwall councillor in charge of public protection said that they do not regard travelling to a second home as essential travel between March 29 and at least April 12. Cllr Rob Nolan, portfolio holder for environment and public protection at the council told CornwallLive: “The stay-at-home rule ends on the 29th of March, but it does talk of people continuing to work from home and minimising journeys.
“While we are waiting for clarification we understand it will be for essential travel, so we don’t regard people coming down to a second home as essential travel.
“Travel was a police matter the last time and I expect it to be again, and any holiday accommodation open in that period, whether its self-catering will be for us to investigate, and we will investigate as they’re not allowed to be open until April 12.”
