    Brilliant, now all we have to do is get them to include if motorhomes are accepted. Would be particularly good for concerts/sporting events.

    I did their survey and suggested motorhome parking should be shown.

    The people who run the Parkopedia site contacted me back in April looking for a source of height information but they were really after a database they could import rather than the text format of the answers provided (quite properly) by local councils which my web site is based on.

    Looking on the Parkopedia site today (Firefox on XP) I see that some of the car parks have height information but it is not clear where they get it from or how accurate it is. For instance for one car park in Middlesbrough the text says 6' 11", the street view image of the car park sign (also displayed on Middlesbrough Council's web site) shows 7' 0" and the text on the Middlesbrough Council web site says 2.1 metres. Not a great deal of difference I know but worth being cautious perhaps.
