Parkdean Resorts, which owns the site, said a range of measures have been implemented to make it Covid-safe.

Owners said 170 jobs at the park have now been secured.

Parkdean Resorts also added it has recruited an additional 1,500 staff across its parks in the UK in preparation for what the group anticipates will be one of its busiest summers ever.

All of the company’s holiday parks, including the one at Camber Sands, have introduced a number of stringent safety and hygiene processes and procedures, which include implementing and enforcing a social distance policy, deep cleaning each caravan between every new customer visit, and making hand sanitiser available throughout the park.

Other measures include restricting access to communal facilities in order to meet the Government’s ‘one metre plus’ social distance requirements, and opening facilities such as convenience shops, allowing people to stay on park without accessing local shops.

Steve Richards, chief executive of Parkdean Resorts, said: “We are ready and waiting to warmly welcome holidaymakers who want to enjoy a well-deserved break whilst seeking fresh air, open spaces and safe, beautiful locations.

“Our team has worked hard to ensure that whilst social distancing and health and safety measures are adhered to, our holidaymakers’ experience will be the best yet.”
