Stay at home this Easter, says East Lindsey District Council

Anyone considering travelling to the Lincolnshire Coast this Easter has been told to stay at home as per Government advice instead.

That’s the message from East Lindsey District Council, which has also announced the closure of its main tourism car parks as they increase measures to combat the spread of Coronavirus.

The East Lincolnshire coast has seen a huge reduction in visitors over recent weeks as the message to stay at home begins to take effect, but with Easter fast approaching the Council has brought in measures in a further effort to discourage visitors.

The Council confirmed that the closure of the car parks would remain in place for as long as necessary.

Councillor Steve Kirk, Portfolio Holder for Coastal Economy at the Council, said: “It seems strange to be asking visitors to stay away and to be introducing measures to discourage them from coming, but this is a wholly necessary step.

“We want to keep those would-be visitors and our residents safe and the best way we can do that is by encouraging people to stay at home.

“The threat posed by the Coronavirus is incredibly high and, and as much as we love people visiting our district it’s not worth the risk of getting ill and spreading this virus further.

“So please, follow Government instructions and stay at home and when this situation is resolved, we’ll gladly welcome you back to the Lincolnshire coast.

“Visitors help make our district the fabulous place that it is, so of course, when it’s safe to travel again, we’d be delighted to see people here in East Lindsey.”
