Have seen a bit on Spanish forums about local folk getting fed up and the police moving folk on, same in Portugal as well.

New laws going through our Parliament at present can, and I’m sure will, be used against wild campers in the UK and not just against the travelling folk currently targeted.

Watch this space.

It is actively being discussed today on local BBC SW Spotlight TV programme.

If you can find it on iPlayer it has some points that are widespread, mainly based on overcrowding and litter being left.

Of course, local authorities are saying that all should use campsites and ignoring the reports that the sites are full.

The spending power of MH users was well presented, along with requests for effectively aires to be established - this SEEMS to be what is happening in Exmouth, but things can change of course.

Worth watching if you can find it.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

If it gets totally banned then we'll pack up altogether, we will never use sites.

Always wild when possible Kev. Mountain tops, lake sides, forests. The fewer people the better when doing that. Silence and nature. Aires can be great too, but camp sites yuk.

It's not that I dislike being in company. I love a few pints and a chat in a busy Pub for example.

You said it. Silence and nature, other people ruin it for us, we have a few tucked out of the way places up in Scotland down barely used tracks, a few locals come sniffing around but as soon as they see we're not kids they just chat and leave us alone.

I have been digging, well trying.....to clarify wild camping in Valencia and the answers are below.

"That regulation which appeared in the latest GVA BOE has now been clarified and it was never meant to apply to motorhomes in fact "the Minister for Tourism has no authority over where a motorhome can or can't park.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/valenci...noctar%3famp=1

"As for using an official caravan or camping facility? Why would a Spanish resident be barred. You could book into a hotel so why not a camping/caravan facility if they are open."
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Camping in Spain since May 8th 2021
Postby Bee » Tue May 18, 2021 6:38 pm

"There are 2 distinct verbs one is Pernoctar or sleep in your motorhome similar to lorry drivers. The other is Acampar or camp with your motorhome.
You are not allowed to camp i.e put furniture outside your van and set up home. The reason the Councillor for Tourism was taken to task is that he has no authority over what happens on the road. That's the DGT. You may park your motorhome in a safe manner anywhere be it town or country as long as there are no signs saying otherwise and cook and eat in it but you may not put out furniture or play music etc outside the camper."
If anybody knows differently, please reply
