Overnight stops for self-contained motorhomes, overnight parking (not camping) allowing sleeping in the vehicle. There’s 250,000+ registered UK motorhomes. Having somewhere to park accessible to the town will increase tourism and boost sales in shops/pubs/restaurants etc. This work’s in places like Canterbury, and indeed throughout Europe (a network of nearly 4000 in France, but also throughout Spain, Portugal, Germany). There could be a restriction of 48hr parking, enabling people to spend a whole day in the town. A nominal charge per night bringing in more revenue for the town – more if water, waste water/chemical disposal points are added (European aires often charge a fee, normally if they provide water and waste, aprox 6 – 15 euro a night), and if authorities dont want to run these facilities, companies who operate these facilities right across Europe, are actively looking for sites in the UK. This is a year round way to encourage motorhome tourists from the UK and abroad.
