    Over the last few days there has been quite a bit of discussion on HM parking in Exmouth and East Devon. As I live in East Devon I thought I would have chat with my local Councillor, who lives in Seaton Devon . He is a Concillor on East Devon District Council and his role is looking after car parks in the East Devon area.

    He tells me that EDDC are going to “trial” the new proposed three car parks in Exmouth where MH’S will be allowed to stay overnight and if this is successful they intend to extend to ALL their car parks.

    PLEASE PLEASE USE THESE FACILITIES RESPONSIBLY - USE THEM OR LOSE THEM.

    Exmouth car parks :-
    Queens Drive Echelon (5.3m limit!!) CP
    Imperial Recreation Ground CP
    Mare Road CP

    When you have used these it would be nice if you sent a letter to EDDC to thank them for providing the facilities.

    This.

    We don’t have any divine right to park wherever we like. We don’t have any divine right to take the piss.

    Use your common sense boys and girls :xThumb:

    Maybe all that use these "trial" Car parks should be registered "Funsters"or members of a recognised club at least, maybe sign a visitors book, conveying their thanks and experiences to EDDC, then hopefully this much appreciated resource will be better respected.
    Just hope our travelling "friends that are known to all of us" dont see this as an opportunity of moving in on a semi permanent basis, they are the ones that ruin it for everyone, especially local residents. They seem to have powers well above the law these days, and dont care about the creating mess that has to be cleared at someone else,s expense. This has got to stop! its 2017 ffs why this has not been addressed before now, given all the experiences & expenses that local councils have had to endure, is beyond me!

    Many thanks Colyboy, for taking the initiative on this, Hope that Santa is good to you this year! :xThumb:
