Motorhomes banned from overnight stays in Colwyn Bay


Another blow to motorhomers' freedom to park and enjoy the British seaside has been struck by Conwy County Borough Council.

The Council has introduced an Experimental Order banning the waiting of motorhomes between the hours of 11pm until 8am along Colwyn Bay Promenade and surrounding streets. The Order came into effect on 12 August and objectors have six months to make representations to the council before it becomes permanent. If you wish to complain, send your reasons to the Head of Law and Governance, Conwy County Borough Council, Bodlondeb, Conwy, LL32 8DU.

The areas now banned from overnight stays include Old Colwyn Promenade – the full width of the road, extending from its southern boundary wall to the railings on its northern side and from its junction with Rotary Way to a point 35 metres east of Cliff Gardens. At Cliff Gardens it includes both sides of the road from its junction with the Promenade for a distance of 20m in a northerly direction. At Colwyn Bay Promenade and West Promenade it incudes both sides from its junction with Rotary Way to its junction with the Cayley Promenade. Both sides of Rotary way are included, from its junction with Colwyn Bay Promenade for a distance of 40m in a southerly direction. Also, all areas in Poth Eirias car park are now included.

The Order itself states that, “No person shall cause or permit any camping vehicle, caravan or motor caravan to wait between the hours of 11pm to 8am in the lengths of the road specified in the Schedule hereto.” It defines ‘camping vehicle, caravan or motor caravan’ as any vehicle designed or adapted for sleeping or cooking.

A spokesperson for the Council is reported as saying that, “The restriction has been introduced this week following concerns from local residents and councillors of a number of people camping in the area, sometimes for extended periods of time.”
