    There are lots of camp sites around here but I was thinking more stopovers than a camp site with nominal charge but then fill up and/or empty tanks at an extra charge. Because there are a lot of camp sites I donít think ehu would be needed as folks could book a night on a site if they needed everything.

    Would it me the same conditions as a caravan park for someth8ng like that?
    Simple terms yes, The caravan development Act applies from memory 28 days no more than 5 vans (might be wrong on that bit) When this site holds official meets the site uses an exemption certificate which gets round numbers but is why meets are only open to members and not non members .It is nothing to do with elitism it is more to do with dotting Is and crossing Ts ....Other meets are private meets where quite frankly we are flying by the seat of our pants. For general stop overs eg cls c/s affiliation to the big clubs is required you are guessing it is complicated

    A good example is for years a pub at Bugsworth basin was used for informal meets ignoring licensing rules for a second it seems locals complained so that is a venue lost headoffices like Sam Smiths mentioned recently don't want anything to do with wild camping I suspect totally on economic grounds the administration legal complexity far outweighs any return

    As regards sites Parkdean etc whilst offering camping to tourers their maincore business is selling statics then selling more statics that is reflected sometimes in facilities

    Local authorities like a rash on them too at present particularly North Wales and Skegness

    What should be straightforward and easy sadly isn't hoops to jump through before you start and that ignores traffic impact , waste collection or lack of

    We surely don't need facilities, just the right to park within shouting distance of a town for a fixed number of nights. I for one am finding myself looking more and more at C&CC temporary sites and cheap CLs with just occasional wildng nights.

    There is now some dedicated parking for motoromes in Glencaple - see attached

    Motorhomes in Caerlaverock - Caerlaverock Community Association

    For info anyone wanting to empty their grey waste at Caerlaverock corner will need a bucket / container as the drain is on a raised level and too far from the parking area for an extended pipe.
