    The reason we bought our van was to stay in marine drive and walk the dogs the next day on the beach, Who wants to join me?

    Will never go to that place again, in a car, bus, train, or any other means.

    you surely have greater aspirations than Scarborough, we like it as well but not that much (y)

    Where is Scarborough? is it where the woman hates motorhomes so much she lies about how bad the owners are?

    They don't want the likes of us going there spending all our money .the only thing I stop for in Scarborough is a traffic light . As I'm passing though .

    This kind of discrimination reminds me of pubs years back with No Bikers signs outside, I thought this type of thing was stopped in the 80s,

    Thats a bit unfair, of course Scarborough council want you to visit......just bugger off by 7pm or suffer the consequences.

    And we used to have more pubs per street mile than anywhere else.....now it traffic lights.

    Because of the councils contempt of MH owners.
    Marine drive empty at this time of year.
    Two weeks ago wanted to take the grandchildren there for one night.
    Sites too far away for disabled wife, too costly to take a taxi into Scarborough. They lost out, the shops, cafes, pubs, etc.
    We went elsewhere and spent over £150 in 24 hrs.

    Where you say, well Harrogate, Shaws, £18 for the night, no early leaving rules so had Sat PM and all day Sun in Harrogate and Knaresborough, and as a bonus spent less on fuel too!

    You can park as close as 300m to the beach on most streets, around either bay.
    Overnight in your van is no different to any other town or city you wish to attempt it in, you take your chances.
    Scarborough seem to be getting a bad press on here, which is beginning to be unfair, I'm not aware of any other towns or cities that activity encourage sleeping in your van on public streets.
    Scarborough needs tourist if you lived here you would realise how much unemployed there is, the place is becoming no hope street for many, boycotting the place will just quicken it's demise.
    It's got great beaches for all including dogs, part of South bay is dog friendly 365 days a year.
    Yep if you can't be bothered to walk 300m and are only interested in parking a metre from the sands you will have to pay (quite a lot) for the privilege during the day and if you try staying overnight, you will be noticed and get a knock on the door.
    Or use a bit of common sense park further back and enjoy a fantastic day at a great Victorian seaside resort.

    Went a couple of weeks back and stayed at Scalby Mills as we have done for the past decade. No problems whatsoever and plenty of other vans too. It was seasonal free parking though.

    As posted Here, there are only 3 roads in Scarborough where motorhomes are banned overnight. You can stay overnight on any other unrestricted road in the town.

    To pick up on what Lin said above, the restrictions are the result of a long public consultation (search the threads and to find the story) and take into account the needs/views of all sections of society.
