Just signed at 4400 now.
I would have liked to see a more expansive description about the petition outlining the economic benefits motorhomers / camper vanners can bring to an area that allows overnight parking, ie :- money spent in shops, attractions, fuel bought, restaurants etc.
Money talks and people (councillors) sit up and take notice when overnight parking is turned into pound notes for the council treasury!!!
The point is ....
A petition like this occasionally gets spectacular results. This one probably won't. This petition is probably the fourth or fifth I've seen and we can be reasonably sure that we won't get a result; a result, that is, that gives us an immediate network of approved parking places. This is no reason not to sign it.
Most of us who have spent time trying to get approved parking places established are fumbling around in the dark and we wonder why approval is so difficult btu we have been learning. Planning problems, public outrage, expense of clearing up after us, prejudice against Travellers, potential abuse by overstaying - and so on.
If this petition gets a certain number of signatures, 10,000 I think, then the government is, somehow, compelled to give an answer; we will be told why it is difficult to approve overnight parking.
When we know the official answer then we can begin to work on solving whatever the problem is.
I just get Error 404 page not found..
It's not where you live... It's HOW you live..
I think a major problem is Brit Motorhomers are too independent and not into communial or social gatherings.As any body who comes here will notice the Spanish seek out fellow Spaniard (strangers ) and have a get together.
I know people will come back with a thousand reasons why it cant be done but thats is surley the challange..... Reachs for his hard hat lol
PS here is a snippet (google via Chrome translate not perfect ) of an approach to Aires in Spain.
