Motorhome Parking Ban Exmouth seafront.
Devon County Council has issued a TRO banning motorhome parking along various parts of Exmouth seafront.: Having read previous posts re Rother Council I cannot see how this is legal. Have spoken to the local council who tell me that there was an update to the relevant laws to specify Motorcaravans. Any ideas? Have only just seen this & the closing date is 22nd March 2018. Not very well advertised, strange that.

Statement of Reasons
Following discussion with Exmouth Town Council and East Devon District Council, parking facilities for Motor Caravans will be made available in off street car parks. To encourage Motor Caravans into the new facilities it is proposed to make an order to prohibit overnight parking for Motor Caravans along Imperial Road, Maer Road and Queen’s Drive spur road and to prohibit Motor Caravans at Any Time along sections of Queen’s Drive.
To provide additional parking capacity during the summer months it is also proposed to introduce Pay & Display parking along sections of Maer Road. Additional sections of No Waiting at Any Time are also proposed on Maer Road to prevent obstructive parking.
Specifically, the order is for preserving or improving the amenities of an area through which the road runs.
