Can I just clarify what the law is on wild camping meets/gatherings etc Is it legal for a pub to just allow 29 vans or so to stop on their premises overnight. Isn't special insurance needed?

Not as far as I'm aware. Organised through FB. So as a non paying membership site I wouldn't think they had insurance.

You done your meet through mhf so therefore had insurance @Wildbill (y)

@Jim
If you swap out the word 'vans' for 'cars', would the question even be asked?

@Jim
If it's just one night , I don't see how it could be against any law , it's a car park doesn't say not overnight , as long as there is no disturbance or obvious camping , can't see any problem.

as motor home owners thay have a minimum of third party insurance
And as motorhome owners a I am sure responcibil members of the motor homing community
The pub will have public libilty insurance
I don't see a problem it's just sume frends getting together
I have Ben to a few fb meets and fund them better than sum other meets
Live and let lived I say

Is there any update on this or some indication of why the question was asked, are you one of the parked up or nearby home owner or what

It's a weekend .m

I would like to know the answer so that I would know if the pub should have insurance to allow 29 vans for the weekend. I know that the organiser doesn't.


I'm surprised the nearby campsite hasn't complained.

I'm waiting on Jim replying. I know he has insurance. What it actually covers I do not know.
Don't think you would have to have any special insurance any different than any car park.

Am I missing something here.

You let a good few MoHo owners you will be at a certain Pub carpark on a certain day.

The Landlord is happy for you to park in his carpark that you are entitled to do as you will be a patron of the Pub.

Is this any different to say a car club having a meet at a Pub?

I cant see what the issue is.

Just read your post

http://www.motorhomeparking.co.uk/act1960.htm

Would appear there is an issue o_O

The problem Bill is if I have been asked to organise a rally at a pub somewhere on behalf of a FB group then I would want to know that its legal. Which its not. Another reason why I asked.

I suppose there wouldn't be an issue until there was one. So to speak.
Like a fire that spread etc. Then how would you go on making a claim on your insurance, pubs insurance, clubs insurance.....or the sue the organiser........:Eeek:

Holding a rally anywhere will probably need an exemption certificate.

Read Jims first post in RALLY PLANNING.

The organiser will have a duty of care and have responsibility for the well being of the campers.

Having an informal 'Meet' where you tell someone you will be camping at a pub and they turn up is not a rally, but i would imagine the landlord would then have the duty of care.

Mine field for any organiser.

Does this mean all the britstops are basically illegal? I'll have to get some camouflage paint or get a stealth camper

I think the britstops have an exemption up to 5 vans. Could be wrong though.

Camping exemption can only be issued to a fully constatuted club from what I see that means a club with a fully democraricly elected committee a quram or sumthing like that it must also hold a AGM anuly of it member's?
I know I applayed for a camping exemption for my youth organisation I know that the c&m have a fully elected committee and the c&cc do thay are club's a group of people can't call them shelf a club with out a elected committee club's and instatut sume what there's a ack of parliment
Regarding clubs
Do forms have the same ?
Just wondering?
