Plans for ten designated overnight parking spaces for campervans and motorhomes at Thrunscoe Land car park in Cleethorpes have been put forward and are now subject to planning permission.
Parking spaces will be defined with wooden logs, created on the southern part of Thrunscoe Land car park in Cleethorpes, specifically the hard-standing area near to the Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway.
The area would include new post indicators and signs displayed, as well as new parking fees introduced at a proposed £12 for 24 hours, with a maximum stay of 48 hours.
Steve Haywood from CAMpRA UK, who fully supports the pilot scheme, said: “The group is very pleased to support this initiative from Cleethorpes, which will not only be welcomed by our groups of 34,000 members, but many of the 400,000 motorcaravans registered in the UK.
“Plus, of course, the increasing number of European visitors who are starting to visit the UK in their motorcaravans to feel welcome.
“Cleethorpes now joins several towns who are recognising the benefits to local businesses by providing simple year-round overnight parking for touring motorcaravans, which is common all over mainland Europe.
“A CAMpRA survey estimates that over £1 billion per year is spent in local businesses by UK motorcaravan owners. We cannot wait to spend some of this money in Cleethorpes. Thank you from CAMpRA members.”
Campervans and motorhomes will no longer be able to stay overnight on a Lincolnshire coast car park following concerns about waste water being dumped.
North East Lincolnshire Council is also set to install a 2.1m maximum height barrier will be installed at Marine Walk car park entrance.
Charging will also be introduced at a set cost of £1.50 for 10 hours and will apply all-year round.
Over the past two summers, council officers and police have used travellers’ enforcement powers to deter motor caravan owners from using the Marine Walk car park.
But civil parking enforcement stops at 8pm, making it unable to stop overnight parking by campervans and motorhome owners.
