PROVIDING there is an "On street parking regulation order" in place then any local authority can place any restrictions they deem fit on any section of public highway.
As has been said before its probably the inconsiderate few (did I say travellers? no I didn't think I did) spoiling it for everyone.
I dont know the area BUT if I lived on that section of road I suspect that I would get a bit cheesed off if people kept treating like a free campsite/unofficial Aire.
The restriction is clearly worded to prevent parking ONLY overnight, which, if you look at it dispassionately, isnt really that unreasonable is it???
I see that they seem to have learned from other Councils and have worded the restriction to specifically cover motorhome type VEHICLES that have sleeping facilities, rather than preventing "overnight sleeping" which would be impossible to prove, a subtle but important difference.
Its not the destination that matters.
It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
