Andy Strangeway, who has already successfully led a motorhome stop over movement campaign to remove hundreds of stopover signs in the Scottish Highlands, is now questioning North Yorkshire County Council for its erection of non-stop over motorhome signs in parking spots.
Mr Strangeway, from East Yorkshire, said that some of his motorhome-owning friends felt that some of the council’s policies were ‘anti-motorhome’. He also said that he believes there is desire from the council to move motorhomes on to local caravan parks. He added: “Not only is this immoral and illegal it also shows a gross misunderstanding of the lifestyle of motorhome owners.”
No Immediate Plans To Remove Signs
A spokesperson for NYCC said that there is no plans to remove the signs which have been imposed through a temporary order. Motorcaravan and Motorhome Magazine spoke to a spokesperson from the council who said: “The council receives many complaints about motorcaravans parking on-street for a variety of reasons, including numerous complaints from local residents… of waste being deposited on the highway.”
The Traffic Regulation Order stops motorhomes parking overnight in 13 locations around the area and it will probably be extended. The prohibition has been put in place on the grounds of environmentalism and waste disposal issues.
