I've set up this section on the Forums to group together all the threads which relate to daytime parking, overnighting, "motorhome-friendly/unfriendly" towns, and so on.
I'll move the relevant recent threads (mainly from "Talk") straight away, but if you spot an older thread which should be here, add a post at the end to say so. That'll "bump" it up to the front page and I'll move it when I see it there.

Thanks John! So this single thread now includes links to the two best sources of nationwide info on the subject - Graham's (above) and now Keith's.
With those two websites, plus Britstops and OF COURSE  PMH Nightstops, we're equipped to go anywhere - or at least to know where we can't! :)

Hi Tony and all our forum friends,
Please welcome our 40th motorhome-friendly Nightstop! It's The Highlander Inn, near Newcastle, and there's a news story on this website. Hope you find it useful! Kate

Sadly, did you see that Aberystwyth's South Promenade now has a ban on motorhomes staying overnight? www.cambrian-news.co.uk/news/i/42790/

A pity but not a surprise.
I was, however, disappointed to see the assertion “Motorhome users spend a lot of money at shops and restaurants on the
seafront, so I think if overnight parking is banned a lot of these
businesses will suffer.” made once again with absolutely no firm evidence of its correctness.
Why didn't they say "we have spent £xxx whilst we've been here"? Real figures might give councils cause to think positively about providing stopover facilities.

Very good news. Now that the uncertainty over member/non-member usage of Nightstops has been resolved I hope that more places will be encouraged to sign up rather than operate on the fringes of illegality.
We are looking forward to our first stay at a Nightstop (as opposed to a CL) in the next few days (The Hawthorne near Oldham).

We hope you like our new Nightstop listings on here and find it easier to use these very motorhome-friendly locations during your travels. We've made it easier for new potential Nightstops to sign up to the scheme, too. The MCC's application form can be downloaded right here! So if you meet any friendly landowners, farmers, publicans, hoteliers and so on who might like to get a CL licence allowing them to legally have up to five motorhomes staying on their land overnight, please send them this link! Many thanks.
