We have a place near us called the broad water it's always full of weekend motorhomes cluttering up the place I've suggested to the local authority that it would be a good place to put up a parking metre not that I'm against them but it would help towards to cost of maintaining the area why should these people park for free when some (not all) leave a mess that has to be cleaned up. And if they are caught not paying clamp them

I'm sure the local businesses would enjoy the loss of money too!!

Any responsible person won't mind paying and don't leave a mess.
If they do I agree. They should face the consequences.

Just because there are frequent or lots of motorhomes is not a reason in itself to over react to things, however obviously I have not been to broad water so only talking generally

Tony, I have been motorhoming for many years, I have never seen an owner of a motor home leave rubbish behind when they leave, however I have seen plenty of car drivers dumping rubbish out of there windows.

Yes well I see it a lot there and to be honest id say most of these people tend to bring most of there supplies with them and do not support the local community due to the cost of petrol food etc in rural areas being considerably higher then inner city's. That's just my 2 penny worth
Happy motoring

I had my first motorhome in the 1980's.
I have never left rubbish and only seen rubbish left once, which I picked up and put in the bin myself!

Thanks for the input.
I personally make sure I buy something locally, even if it's just milk and a paper.
We go to these places because they and the people who live in them are great and I want it to stay that way!

Used to get motor homes staying in the car park at Christchurch.(about 70 yards from my old house) .

There were the normal guys, clean, respectful etc and never a problem at all, happily doing some boating, making a nice cuppa mid afternoon etc.

The other type trashed everything, left a total mess, were abusive, washed their kids in the kids water park etc etc....total nobs.

Like boaters and jetskiers and sailers and rowers and drivers and cyclists ........not everyone is the same..

It is a popular fishing area with a super reef for bass fishing and most of these motor homes do tend to be fishermen who cook their catch on the roadside sometimes while enjoying a boozy weekend I'm not painting you all with the same brush but some do tend to leave a little mess that had to be cleaned up by someone
