Never seen such a twisted report about motorhome.
Motorhomes using carpark as campsite ,are the same motorhomes visitors ?
Motorhomes filling carpark stopping visitors parking ,again are the motorhomes not visitors?
Having visited this place a number of times there is a height barrier blocking off 3/4 of the carpark ,what is the problem?
It is a great overnight stop on the left next to the burgervan/cafe there is room for at least 6 motorhome dedicated spaces away from the lifeboat station and the beach front,as this area is not marked out as part of the carpark ,why can't it be a motorhome parking area, walking distance to the town centre and eating places.

The mayor is also chair of the regeneration committee - so I’ve sent an email stressing how enabling Motorhomes to park within walking distance of Burry Port would help in its regeneration (as opposed to 2.6m miles away at Pembrey).
Also that the trade would be all year round not just summer.
Pointing out the South Hams trial - as well as the business hub on the website.
That they can restrict length of stay - as well as hours of stay if say 10 til 4 is busy with locals
That if they mark out an area just for Motorhomes they can limit the numbers, and also specify where they can park
That South Hams are forecasting that they break even - even with very conservative visitor numbers
That we don’t need any extra facilities - just somewhere quiet to park for the night, ideally close to pubs, shops etc, and that we will pay for that location.

Fingers crossed!

Email just sent to Cllr Michael Theodoulou
Mayor at Pembrey and Bury Port Council.
Rather light a candle than moan about the darkness!!

Hello

Sad to see we can’t park easily in your area with our Motorhome anymore. We are happy to pay to park overnight especially if you have extra facilities like water, waste and rubbish disposal. We rarely use camp sites as we are self contained and don’t need to use their showers, toilets etc.

Would you please take the time to have a look at our Campra business hub which shows how we can all work together on this problem and hopefully bring some income to the area. We love eating out and always buy our food etc locally when touring.

Thank you so much for having a look.

Best wishes
