Cornwall Council looking to extend prohibiting overnight camping in motorhomes in more car parks



In response to local concerns the Cornwall Council are looking to ban overnight campervans in more of Cornwall Council car parks according to their website.

There is already a ban in place in a number of their carparks and the 2019 Off-Street Parking Order covering letter suggests extending the overnight motorhome prohibition to the following car parks:

  • Cobweb, Boscastle
  • Viewing Point South, Bude
  • Porthrepta, Carbis Bay
  • Downderry Broadsyard, Downderry
  • Pendennis Point, Falmouth
  • The Dell, Falmouth
  • Readymoney, Fowey
  • Fairground, Helston
  • Link Road, Padstow
  • Long Rock
  • Wherrytown, Penzance
  • Porthtowan Beach, Porthtowan
  • Visitor Centre, Tintagel

We have a growing number of motorhomes and camper visiting Cornwall every year and reports from various forums suggest that “Wild camping” is becoming more popular.

Although I understand the need to restrict overnight parking, I am hoping that the use of height restrictions is not used as it can be difficult enough to find parking space big enough for campers and motorhome in tourist spots as it is.
