    Hi its been reported by Andy on ARVM that overnighting is allowed at the station carpark:

    Dawlish Warren Devon ,they have a very large and level car park where you can stay overnight free off charge and then for only £3.30 can stay all day. Good access as well . Apparantly this is a trial experiment but hopefully will be popular and continue. Hope this is usefull to someone regards . AndyD

    Maximum stay 48 hours, he also thinks that Tiegnmouth are doing the same thing,but he hasn't been there, sounds as if the message might be getting through to some councils. :BigGrin:

    I have added it to Jims map.

    Hi

    Let's hope so it's about time if a few councils are brave enough to start the ball rolling, you never know where it will finish.

    This is something which officers of Teignbridge Council have been working on for some time. The two car parks are Dawlish Warren landward side and East Cliff, Teignmouth.

    The official notice of the decision is on the Teignbridge Council web site Here.

    Doesn't the World look different from up there!!

    Yes, thats the car park. Its got a slope on it away from Dawlish Road but I'm not too sure about that when down towards the bottom (nearer the water)

    Yes that's it. There is a slope but it is possible to get reasonably flat. Some use ramps as well. There are usually around 3 -4 campers there each night but no RVs as the spaces are marked off and probably would be charged for 3 spaces during the day even if there was sufficient space for such a large vehicle. There is an area reserved for coaches but this is heavily used by coach companies.

    Thanks guys, pity about RV's at Teignbridge :cry: but apart from that both sites look excellent, the council has either been lucky or clever, both sites are near the beach, station and town, just need water and dump to make them perfect. :BigGrin:

    Hi all
    had a letter from the council asking us to use the coach-bays if we're too big for the normal ones. :thumb:
    The car park's level in the back corner and if you back into a bay by the railway and overhang the bank a 6mtr m/home just fits within a car bay.
    Then it's out the backway,down the slope and into the cafe on the left :thumb:

    regards...nige

    Highwayman. At the moment the railway bridge is being sandblasted and the bottom left hand corner of East Cliff is being used by contractors' portacabins, plant and equipment but there is still plenty of room but not so much on the flatter bits.

    I'm surprised by the reply from the Council because the bus bays are nearly always full. But if that is what the Council say then so be it. However, I'm not sure what the price is for daily parking in these bays.
