    The books are out, and I hope the scheme will be well supported. As a host we look forward to meeting new friends. Brit Stops provides safe stopovers throughout UK. Discount still available at www.britstops.com

    I hope this scheme takes off, places to park are becoming difficult to find, I enjoy wild camping but this scheme will be good for those that don't. I will look in at Peterborough and maybe join. I would have thought it would be better and more interesting than the pub stop club, (for me at least as I park in pub carparks anyway) best of luck to them, though I do think it should have been called Brit Passion:thumb:

    I see they're offering a further discount to the members of the Dark Side, did they have any input into setting this scheme up?

    Britstops can never work, because unlike French Passion planning permission is required in the UK. Britstop owners replied to my comment on that fact but saying that would be up the the individual to sort out not our problem, so all the people approached to join the scheme have not presumably been informed of the need for planning permission. A badly thought out idea !!!!

    If you are right and the rug is pulled, there are going to be quite a few disappointed people. But it seems to me its already working, they have 75+ locations, hundreds of members, stickers out and books printed.

    Why is planning reqd
    I'd have thought as non paying invited guests, no rules are being broken
    Or are we now banned from inviting guests to our home:Eeek:

    There ARE rules ............... dating back to the 60s if not the 40s! However we have been "inviting" forum members (friends) to park for nothing for a while and are quite happy to invite brit stop friends, too. Strictly, I believe, planning permission is required - but unless there are complaints from neighbours I can't believe anyone will be paid to enforce it. We, for one, are prepared to take the risk:winky:

    About 75 all put into separate regions, but there is no advice as to ease of access to the stops
