    I think that it's restricted now. Others on here will be along to give the up-to-the-minute situation.

    Most seem to use the P&R site now at Canterbury.

    Give up on Dover you lot!!

    They don't want you there! Get over it!

    Wait until you get on the other side of the water for your kip!
    The Daily Mail is wrong, you won't be swamped with immigrants clinging to your van!

    I understand that the Western end of Marine Parade known as the Esplanade is still usable .

    Alternatively the car park in Maison Dieu Road is usable overnight, and charges do not apply 5.30pm until 0830am.

    While I hold with the idea go over and stay on the other side , we went on a early morning tunnel and stayed in dover, don't know where marine parade is but just before the last roundabout for the ferry is a street at the side of the main road , is that it . Because there was plenty room on there and we parked up , no problem , sign said no restriction to parking, but it was very noisey with the lorrys going past all the time, but don't think it was called marine parade.

    Marine Parade is the nearest road to the beach.

    Thats the spot we use at St Margarets on Cliff.
    Always quiet and peaceful with great views and only 10 mins to docks. We arrive late/leave early but keep it to yourselves, don't want it to get too busy!
    ps you will get the message 'welcome to france' here if with vodaphone so switch off mobile data!

    That's Snargate Street.

    There were MH's parked there over holiday period. MH's should not park on Marine Parade or Waterloo Crescent, signs clearly state cars & motorcycles only. Coaches, caravans etc are allowed to park on The Esplanade, the western end of the sea front.

    As far as I know the western end is still OK the poxy council is more worried about the Gateway residents further along. I might have some news soon about an alternative nearby for MHs but nothing heard back yet.

    Thanks for that , thought it wasn't marine parade, but it was ok for a quick heads down although as I said it was very noisy, I don't know the exact wording on the signs but I am sure it said something like parking , no restrictions

    It is called British humour A C. (y) ( though why I aint too sure as it is displayed and used equally well by our close cousins, the German and French peoples )
    Same humour that got us through the blitz.. when cartoons of people in the rubble of Britain made folk think and smile
    In fact the same humour being displayed by the French ( among many ) cartoonists in answer to the horror of the other day ..
    Satire is possibly the most subtle of humour and is only for the brave and/or intelligent and people either love it or loath it :sneaky:

    To the OP
    Dover council are just displaying their short sightedness .. Do they thing banning MH from one place will make the disappear ?
    We will all simply move somewhere else.. And if the council carries on banning parking in different areas they will end up having to supply a dedicated area for folk to park in at considerable cost to them selves which will take donkeys years to recover !

    Hi.
    The sad thing is,they will keep banning o/night parking. Many years ago,you could park up in a c/van near enough anywhere,.soon,as they became more popular certain areas were swamped with c/vans,so began the bans and "Sites" were approved by the councils to overcome this problem.
    Fast forward to now,M/homes are swamping areas.... "Have to make a parking area somewhere else ?" They already have,certificated sites.
    Don't shoot the messenger,this is just how the cookie crumbles. I am afraid that the cry,"We bring money to the area" rings hollow in some ears,it would appear that "Free" parking is the driving force here,as there are plenty of sites/M'way service areas to stay o/night,at a price,and or,better planning of arriving at Dover.
    Tea Bag.
    PS. There are lay byes on the main road,some have a super view of the dock,noisy ? Well if it was noise or £14-£20,i will choose noise. for only a couple of hours kip/rest
