Dover Council approve new overnight parking charge for motorhomes and caravans along Marine Parade, Dover. Charge is £10 to park at any time between 1800 and 0600 the next day. There are not any plans to provide toilets or grey/black waste dumps.
Although it was made known to this and other f/b motorhome groups there were only a handful of objections from motorhome owners, but 20 objections in total.

Completely banned from parking there throughout the day though, but they've added an extra £2.50 charge just for overnight parking without supplying any facilities.

I guess the rate isn't all that bad when you look at what their regular parking fees are. 🤷‍♀️

Maybe local residents have objected to motorhomes parking there?

Although it’s good to see Dover council allowing the parking ( where did all the residents complaints go?) it’s still pricey. I would rather stay at Canterbury Park and Ride. 20 minutes away, but it’s cheaper, and it’s a designated site with drinking water and waste disposal point with free bus into Canterbury.

To be honest I’m not putting these up to say I agree with the pricing or the rules they are for information only just so people can see what still is out there post Covid.

I saw something about Redcar and Cleveland council allowing vans to stay overnight on the Majuba rd carpark. You can keep the boy racers company.

That "field" looks very very nice, it seems farmers or landowners are catching on to the fact that money can be made from Campervans and Motorhomers. As long as they don't start over charging ££££ ( especially if they have no facilities) things can only go well and bring in extra money for them.

All looks positive to me - think there are are lot more savvy pub owners and other businesses who are cottoning on to the fact that motorhomes and camper vans are to be welcomed with open arms rather than vilified and turned away.

Covid has also encouraged relaxation of some of the business rules and regs which, in our case, can only be good news.

Private businesses will be getting switched on to what's possible long before your local councils!

Slowly, slowly catchee monkey? :unsure:(y)
