    Thanks to AndyC www.ukmotorhomes.net/uk-motorhome-stopovers-news.shtml for the feedback.

    Just had this from Chris Graves, Head of Parking & Transport, for the Shared Service Partnership of West Dorset District Council and Weymouth and Portland Borough Council:

    Portland Borough Council Partnership has approved continental style Aire point pilot to go ahead in this borough

    Fantastic. My boss has put forward a similar proposal for an aire in Market Harborough. I would be very interested to hear how you get on with the whole process. How you convince the council that it will not be taken over by travellers?

    There was an article in the local paper about this a few weeks ago. Looks as though there is a lot of support for it from local businesses who realise Motorhomers will spend their money locally.

    Hopefully other town councils will learn from it.

    Great. I knew it was on the cards so nice to see it is progressing.

    When we were discussing the Guisborough facility with Redcar & Cleveland Council somebody raised the risk of travellers. It was pointed out that the car/coach park had been open for over 30 years and there had never been a problem. I think the temporary legal order was drawn up such that motorhomes were allowed, towed caravans were strictly excluded and there were measures to enable fast action to be taken against illegal campsites.

    Travellers never attempted to use the facility. Trouble is few motorhomers did :cry:

    Pity about that Paul. If you had contacted the council they might well have let you stay in the car park anyway.

    Good luck tomorrow. We were in Guisborough for the farmers market this morning and it was flamin' cold.

    Why would they? They haven't objected to any of the existing similar schemes have they?
