Completed petition Relax travel restrictions imposed by Covid 19 legislation to allow travel within Wales

On 29th May the Welsh Government announced changes to the restrictions imposed by the Covid 19 regulations. Rules were relaxed but there is still a requirement for people to remain local. These rules prevent families who may live much further apart from meeting and prevent most residents enjoying exercise in the coast and countryside. There is no reason why social distancing cannot be more easily managed in the great outdoors. Restrictions have already been relaxed in England and N.Ireland.
