    We're off to France again soon and usually use Marina Drive in Dover to stop overnight before getting an early ferry, and then for the same on the way home following a late night crossing.
    I was told last week that you can no longer stay here:cry:
    Does anyone know if this has changed?
    Can we still park up for free overnight on Marina Drive?

    Plenty of forum 'chatter' about it but haven't found anything saying it's been stopped... this may be of interest ..

    We were there on 31 May and it looked as if we should have been at the west end, but when we came back on 6 July, it was dark and everybody was just parked at the usual place. :BigGrin:

    We parked in front of the flats in early April. There has been a change to the parking bay markings on the road. A couple of police cars passed us on patrol which is normal along the promenade. Nobody said a word.

    There were three other motor homes parked at the same time.

    Thanks for all the replies. That helps a lot, and means that we will stick to the original plan:thumb:

    When I was searching the internet for info on this I did come across a forum where the residents were talking about ways to stop MH's parking there!!!
    Lets hope they don't get their way:Wink:

    Hi, I think thats up the end towards the dock where the 6' 6" limit is, we always go the other end, as far down as we can get, then in the morning just go round the roundabout and back up to the dock, it easier to get out that way.:thumb: Bob.

    They are really being picky because most of the flats in the Gateway are way above the roof of any MH. The ground floor residents will be affected but the majority would not see any impact.

    Just something to complain about for some people. Not all Kentish residents are like this but a hell of a lot of them that are.
