    See Here. The council told me that, with regards to on street parking, as Traffic Orders vary throughout the town it is recommended that motorists check the restrictions in force at that place when parking.

    The council's contact number is 01253 477477. Might be worth giving them a ring.

    I tend to use the Bispham & Norbrick End. The Road Drops off to a Promenade drive along the sea wall (to be avoided on stormy nights). It is reputed to be a gay zone,:Rofl1: but I have never been bothered.:Blush:

    Take a look at this post I saw when I was browsing another another web site about banning motor home parking on Blackpool prom.

    posted on ukcampsite.co.uk



    I applaud Blackpool council on this matter

    I have recently been working on the new improvements on Blackpool seafront

    This is a Multi million pound Improvement with all new tramlines, New Promenade

    Even new trams

    The last thing that is needed is a Rag tag collection of clapped out tranny van conversions sat along the new promenade for days or even weeks at atime !

    Just had a look at that thread on UK Campsite.

    Interesting to see that the next post is
    Also interesting to see one further down
    Once again - just as with Bamburgh - it seems that it is the selfish few who spoil it for the responsible many.

    When we was there in October we stayed at the Solarium Centre as recomended by several folk on here
    Excellent venue with a handy toilet block and warm water on tap to have a splash with in the morning ( 20p to open the door though )

    Amazingly it was absolutely immaculate ! The Solarium is way out of reach of the usual pleasure beach dweller.. AND there was a woman came round twice whilst we was there to clean it all out..

    It seems to be used almost exclusively by vanner's ( a good many from on here actually !) so you can bet it is kept very nice indeed

    I have a nice new motorhome too.

    But I don't consider myself superior to those who can only afford a 'clapped out Tranny van conversion.'

    :Rofl1:We've just been trying to think of a nice way of saying Blackpool, Blackpool, don't think so. Probably only clapped out van owners would want to park there which is why whatsisname thinks all motorhomes are rubbish. The council may be trying to take Blackpool 'up market'. No chance! We would'nt go back if they paid us. Spend our money elsewhere.:helptitanic::Rofl1:

    Thanks Spongebobsdad, I have just been over to the other forum and read the thread, I see that even motorhoming blue badge holders are not allowed to park on the front and other than the coach park there is no real alternative parking provision made for motorhomes, be it a disabled persons or not
    Blackpool would appear to be following other seaside resort towns in the banning of motorhomes on the front.

    Hi Peter

    I think you have misinterpreted the post i placed i do not and would never condemn another persons mode of transport. especially their motor home, I don`t care what a person drives as long as they are enjoying what they do . The post i added was copied from another web site written by someone else not me.
    The point i was trying to get over is how some people, obviously not a motor home owner, have their own bias views on motor homes.
