    Hi, Tony and Carol, and a warm welcome from us.

    Is Huttoft Bank still available for motorhomers? Last we heard the council had put up a height barrier.

    Hi Rob and Carol. they did erect barriers a few years ago but they kept getting knocked down. they tried to stop overnight parking but it has been very busy with vans this year.

    And people still wonder why councils aren't interested in allowing overnighting in their car parks :doh:

    for members that have never been to the terrace it is not a pay and display council carpark.

    No, its a coastal country car park owned by Lincolnshire County Council where camping is banned.
    Some ignorant, selfish, people ignore the byelaws - which sends a message to all councils in the country that they are typical of motorhome owners.

    Seems they were having trouble with FLTs as far back as 1875.

    Experienced free Loading Tossers (such as myself) avoid parking against the regulations where it would upset the conventional housey folk.

    Heading up there today or tomorrow for a day at the beach. But not overnighting.

    Still don't get why when they know how popular it is. It can't be made like an aire and the council make money from it.

    Charge for parking anyway

    It's been well documented if you Google it. Basically it's a matter of management of a site remote from staff bases. The council would only make money from it if people actually paid up and the vandalism that has already taken place shows the lengths some will go to in order to take what they want without payment.

    I dont think the local dogging scene or smugglers wanted motor homes disturbing their evening activities.

    That's a different matter from unauthorised camping in motorhomes. People who lie to obtain sea fishing permits so that they can then abuse the system to enable unauthorised camping come into the category of ignorant, selfish, people who turn councils against the majority of motorhomers.

    Not at all, just sick of getting knock backs because of people who think legislation doesn't apply to them and they can do anything they want regardless of the consequences :D

    Myself and my wife are neither ignorant or selfish and know about the legality of some of these byelaws we are not in the habit of pictching up anywhere we like.

    Graham its not as they are blocking anyones view is it. Staying a night or two isn't exactly a hanging offence. No need to call them ignorant. Think you need to chill a bit. Have a pasty. With carrots. :)

    My comment was a general one, not aimed at anyone specific. As you have posted that you don't camp on the terrace it can't refer to you though can it?

    We all know the history of Huttoft Terrace (or can find it using Google if we don't). If it were just people staying a night or two then LCC probably wouldn't bother but people have abused the area too much and, as a result, the bye-laws ban motorhomes completely. The only reason that motorhomes are able to physically access the terrace is that the barriers were destroyed - a criminal act. If criminal acts aren't ignorant then I don't know what is.
