Leaving and returning to the Settlers car park

i saw this:

Please note last entry to the Settlement and Settlement Car Park is 8pm Wednesday 18th August. No arrivals after this time until the festival opens 10am Thursday 19th August. All cars arriving from Thursday will need to go to the Park and Ride or Orange Car Parks.

and took it that a settler cannot return to the settlers car park after Thurs (as I will need to do, to collect my wife who has a weekend ticket)

GM have confirmed that settlers can return to the settlers car park on Thurs and beyond:

Hey Rob, you can indeed. Just remember that as you're leaving site you'll need to again show proof of your double vaccination or negative NHS lateral flow test. Cheers, GM 

I'd appreciate a copy of the email, but I can't work out how to DM you!
