Motorhome and campervan stopover trialled in Pembrokeshire

18194f47-574f-47b8-9608-e849defc1cb4

Pembrokeshire County Council has approved a trial scheme to provide stopovers for motorhomes and campervans

This trial, called Pembs Stop, will hopefully pave the way for a range of stopovers across the county, but initially will be restricted to four council-owned car parks.

Overnight parking is currently allowed in council car parks; however, sleeping in those vehicles is not, so the rules around this (Off-Street Parking Places Order 2011) will need to be adapted. The scheme proposes that for a £10 fee (payable via machine or through an app), motorhomers could sleep overnight for a maximum of two nights. The fee covers 7pm to 9am and normal car parking charges would apply outside this time.

The suggested car parks for the trial are:

  • North Beach, Tenby
  • Goodwick Moor, Goodwick (linked to ferry port)
  • Townsmoor, Narberth
  • Western Way, Pembroke (linked to ferry port, but currently has a height barrier)

As per normal stopover guidelines, camping chairs, etc, should not be stored or used outside the motorhome and awnings also shouldn’t be used. Vehicles must park within allocated bays. There will be no waste or recycling points available; however, the car parks selected are close to public toilets.

It is hoped that, if successful, the trial could be extended to other places, such as school car parks, which would be managed independently.

Cllr John Harvey stated, “To have a safe place where motorhome owners can park up for one night or two nights maximum is certainly worth trialling.”

The scheme should be in place for 1 July, but check with the council before planning a stopover.
