Motorhomes Banned Using Car Parks In Whitby

Motorhomes Banned Using Car Parks In Whitby

A decision has been made about motorhome owners parking overnight in Whitby.

Overnight parking bans will be implemented on the 1st of August to Endeavour Wharf and Battery Parade.

But an amendment was approved for those who use Whitby Marina's car park.

During today's cabinet meeting, Councillor Mike Cockerill said:

"In regards to the Marina users car park, and I'm emphasizing its Marina users.

Motor caravans are only allowed to park within the clear marked Marina car park.

This would mean that motor caravans belonging to permit holders are not allowed to park elsewhere if the spaces allocated are all taken.

And that the owners of such motor caravans are required to leave their curtains open to show that they're not being used for camping."

Councillor Sandra Turner said:

"We've got to taken into consideration that the boat owners do pay for the permits and they do need access to their boats.

And not all of us own just cars, some people own a motorhome for normal everyday use.

So including the amendment, that would address that issue, so I would quite be happy to support that."

Residents have complained for a couple of years about motorhomes being parked up and ruining views of the harbour.
