Motorhome Parking in Gloucestershire.
The information is presented by local authority area.
Gloucestershire County Council; Parking Page. Charging information includes motorhomes in certain towns; Park & Ride Page. See details for each site as to where height barriers are in place.
Cheltenham Borough Council; Parking Page.
Motorhomes can use North Place car park but council parking provision is under major change. When the Orders have been updated and the council is clear on parking arrangements it will then be in a position to publish the information online (Stated 12 September 2013). North Place car park has since been closed. An update from the Car Parks Senior Civil Enforcement Officer at the council was received on 21 December 2015 - "Please see the link below for the coach parking information and it would be the same for a motorhome parking as well I believe." The link supplied is to This Page. See county council for P&R.
Cotswold District Council; Car Parks Page. Includes Motorhome parking information.
Bourton on the Water; the Visitor Information Centre has indicated that there is overnight parking and daily motorhome parking available at the privately owned car park on Station Road. Advice is to check signage before parking.
Cotswold Water Park. No height restrictions at the Gateway Centre car park, Spine Road, South Cerney GL7 5TL. Height restrictions apply at the other car parks.
Fairford Town Council; Home Page. An enquiry was made about the car park at Mill Lane on 8 January 2016. The very prompt reply was "There is no daytime restriction, however, there is a weight restriction of 2240kgs. No cars should be parked in the car park between midnight and 6.00am."
Forest of Dean District Council; Parking Page; Off Street Parking Order. The order generally requires that vehicles must fit in the marked bays, which probably precludes parking of many motorhomes. If in doubt contact the council before parking.
Clearwell Caves, The Rocks, Clearwell, Coleford, Glos. GL16 8JR. The following response to an enquiry was received on 1 March 2016: "Clearwell Caves car and coach park is suitable for motorhomes to park, but is inclined and only level in a few places.".
Gloucester City Council; Parking Page includes information on motor home parking. Parking Services also advise customers which car parks are suitable for motorhomes (Stated 3 October 2013).
Gloucester Quays Designer Outlet, Gloucester. Information received 10 February 2014: We do not currently have specific information for motor home parking on our website, however I can inform you that our website will be updated in the near future. The height restriction for our car park is 2.10 metres.
South Gloucestershire Council; Parking Page. Car Parks Page see note on motorhome parking at the foot of the page.
Stroud District Council; Parking Page. The Car Park Charges Page contains a note "No vehicles over 3.5 tonnes (apart from Cheapside, Park within marked bays" but the following information was received on 19th July 2016 "It is also worth mentioning that following numerous unauthorised encampments in our car parks and the huge costs incurred in removing them from the land, a decision has been taken to install height restriction barriers at the following locations: Cainscross, Stonehouse, Cheapside, London Road. The commercial rate and allowance will be removed from the Cheapside car park to support this change. While we appreciate that this may inconvenience some users, many other car parks within the Stroud District will have the capacity to accept high vehicles that do not exceed 3.5 tonnes.". Unfortunately there is no positive information on the web site as to which car parks have no height barriers and the requirement to park within marked bays probably restricts motorhome parking anyway.
Berkeley Castle, Gloucestershire, GL13 9BQ. Response to an enquiry received 18 January 2016: "People visiting the Castle with motorhomes are welcome to use either the main visitor car park or alternatively use our coach park.".
Tewkesbury Borough Council; Parking Page. See note on motorhome parking at the foot of the Car Parks Page.
Sudeley Castle, Winchcombe, Gloucestershire, GL54 5JD. Directions Page includes large vehicle parking information.
