Without reading the original, all it seems to be saying is that firstly they are going to communicate the difference between parking and camping. Seems fair enough to me and would be a Clamp down on camping - not a clampdown on parking.

Yes unless they make it the same for all types of vehicle regarding any 'parking' restrictions then they are not legal under the national laws.

I know two local residents here in Javea that have had €300 fines for parking on the road for more than 2 days outside their homes, I take it is the same rules as Calpe. :crying:
We can park behind our apartment , and can abide by the parking and not camping rule when out and about, but very unfair when you live there. :rolleyes:
But then you park outside your home and everyone parks next to you. :mad:
They wouldn't do it in their own country. :( Bob.

There are two motorhomes in the streets near us. One french reg and one brit. They rarely move and no problems as far as I know.

There are a few that live in Javea, and I can only imagine they have been lucky, :rolleyes:
But you know what the Spanish are, the free loaders are on the last building plot near scallops, some have been there since September and the police cant move them because it's not their land and has to go through the courts, but the locals complain and the police issue tickets to the ones they can. :cry:
One with a ticket was Ray Turner with an a class Rapido don't know if you have met him, the other guy is the tag Hymer near the FLT. :rolleyes:

There are 50 or so parked near the sandstone sculptures at Bolnuevo, some next to the no motorhome signs. They are being tolerated at the moment, the only ones asked to move were the ones next to the sculptures, which is a tourist attraction. Unfortunately many are "camping" some with solar panels out. I saw a step and mat left to reserve a space! and even a car and caravan. It'll only be a matter of time ...

With Brexit looming something was bound to happen, but, as usual there are the few idiots who flaunt the use of "parking", as we can see from the photo of Bolnuevo, tables and chairs out and making a mockery of the chances we have. There is a difference between parking and camping and as long as we park considerately we might be allowed to continue. We have been doing it over recent years but with respect, never get chairs and tables out, never park in front of someones front door or where you are offending someone, we have parked on beaches, car parks, waste ground with no problems.

What you couldn't see from my photo was freestanding solar panels and disconnected trailers with cars parked ad hoc. No way could that be construed as "parking" ... and the "person" who told our friend the way to dispose of black water.

"You go to a cafe looking like a hiker with a rucksack. Buy a coffee. Pay for it and then go to use their toilet with your rucksack on your back (of course!).

You can guess the rest :mad::mad::mad:

Oh No! Emptying a cassette down a toilet. That should be a crime punishable by a custodial sentence. Where is it all going to end.

It’s one thing parking for a night on a deserted beach , but today’s freeloaders are turning these parking areas into no more than travellers sites. There is an area in Javea in the town at Arenal which is occupied by about 20 vans parked in a circle. What do they do with their waste? I dread to think . Some of these MH s are pretty new and therefore quite expensive. If they can afford the vehicles they can afford to pay site fees. I would also add that there is a high percentage of Brit’s there!
There are no Camperstops here , no doubt because there are already two adequate Campsites here. The local Authorities here are pretty laid back here but I can’t see this being tolerated for much longer.

We've spent 7 weeks on a campsite at Benidorm and walking back to the site several motorhomes are parked every night. In a layby. On at least 5 occasions we've seen people with toilet cassettes running back to there van from an adjoining park. No guessing as to what is happening. These people are the lowest of the pile and I'm very tempted to publish number plates. Instead have given there details to the local police. This activity is ruining stays for everyone. ALL we're English registered.

When I was in my house in Javea last year there was a new Concorde with a new car on a trailer parked on the patch of land near Scallops for more than a week, if the owner can afford that sort of rig there is no reason why he can’t use the two perfectly adequate campsites in the town. I agree with the comments about disposal of toilet and grey waste. I see motorhomes parked there for weeks at a time no doubt lifting manhole covers and emptying waste down them, irrespective of whether they are drainage or soil type pipes. We property owners pay rates to support services such as this, these motorhomers contribute nothing and it is no wonder that Spanish towns in general are getting tired of being taken advantage of.

The mayor of Javea is a very switched on gentleman and I don’t think it will be long before he decides it is time that something is done about the situation.

I agree with your sentiments entirely and whilst I class myself as a proud FFree LLoading Ttosser, this sort of behaviour is clearly unacceptable and gives us all a bad reputation. Pity you did not take the picture, then publish in the hope of naming and shaming. Would that be Villasol campsite with the motor-homes legally parked just down a bit, near the play park and football stadium, with the rough ground on the other side of the road ? Surprised that guys would be emptying there cassettes there, there's always people about and it's fairly well policed too.

Well I for one would take a very dim view of someone walking through an eating establishment with cassette full of s**t on their backs and then going into the toilet and splashing it round the toilet bowl.

Technicaly, shit doesn't splash, that would be piss. I think shit is more of a thud than anything else, unless of course you've had some Yorkshire pies the night before , then it;s just a smashing sound as the crapper disintegrates in a thousand pieces.
