As I posted on OAL earlier today, there is no outcry to ban outdoor BBQs in Public areas despite the carnage left behind. There is no move to Police well publicised Dogging spots. Turn up in a motorhome and you are on borrowed time.


So ... You can eat and get drunk or watch people shagging without worry ... as long as you don't arrive at these events in a Motorhome.

Perhaps you suffer from particularly messy motorhomers but I expect the shortcoming of the few are being used as an excuse for restrictions on motorhomes.

So I thought I'd use the email option but I really need to quote the reference number etc.

Is there any chance you could copy/paste those bits of info - at present they're in jpeg format.

If it's relatively easy to do I think you'll get more support from the folks here.

Thanks.

Thanks for your help. I've long thought that the only hope for continued fairly free motorhoming is to campaign for aires on the contentinetal system and I support private as well as publicly owned aires.


Thanks again.

To me any such bans are discrimination and I do not approve of that wherever it occurs but sadly until the "big" Clubs such as what used to be the CC and the C&CC unite and fight against it then it will proliferate -sadly both organisations seem content to do a Corbyn and sit on their hands....

Sadly, it is worse than that. They actively involve themselves in support of restrictions being applied.

The Planners may well welcome such a reassurance that users would not stay there like so many so called "travellers" do and the charge would be legally enforceable unlike the "Parking Charges" imposed by companies out to make money.

Just a thought that might be worth sharing (but would be unpopular with some people I am sure).
"Many motorhomers leave behind filthy mess" I think you are vastly overstating that. Certainly a few might but given the number of motorhomes used by the ordinary public I would think this happens on relatively few occasions, of course one is one to many and I don't have any statistics to back this up. However I doubt you have an to support your assertion either.

maureentom I've received an email from Liverpool Marina amending the email address for the appeal.





I've sent my support by letter attached to an email to the amended address: [email protected]



penguin. When councils introduce restrictions they invariably accuse us of leaving a mess behind us and that this generates large numbers of complaints from the public. When I've investigated using the Freedom of Information Act there are never significant numbers of complaints.



Lincs Co Council was probably the worst. They said hundreds of complaints about mess at Huttoft. The true situation revealed by the FoI was two or three complaints (none about mess) and only about 24 for the whole of the county (none about mess). N Yorks said "numerous" for Scarborough- there were none. Fleetwood said "many" - there were none. I could go on.



In the dozen or so I've investigaged the pattern is repeated. The councils say the public complains - the FoI answer is invariably few complaints - mostly none.


The public outrage we're so sure exists about us is just not there.
