Rochdale Borough Council; Parking Page. Rochdale Council is currently updating the Parking Services page on their Website and reviewing information given on all the tariff boards at each location. We are considering the possibility of including details of the classification of vehicles which would be permitted to park; however it is unlikely that there would be a separate note for the drivers of Motorhomes; the onus would be on each motorist to check that their vehicle is a permitted classification. In the interim period, the Council Website lists the Parking Services contact details including a direct link to the email address; should anyone require further clarification we would request that they contact us directly where we would be happy to advise accordingly.

Salford City Council; Parking Page. The council is considering publishing information regarding the lack of motorhome parking in the city.

Statement October 2013: As Wigan is not a major tourist attraction or holiday destination we do not receive many requests for motor home parking availability, if anyone is wishing to park on any of our designated pay and display car parks they can do so as long as they can fit their vehicle, under any height restrictions that may apply and in the 2.4 x 4.8m parking bays and pay for the duration of their stay. Furthermore there is displayed on all of the car parks terms and conditions boards stating that we do not allow camping. It may be that there is some demand for motor home parking in the boroughs residential streets, this is allowed and the only time parking would not be allowed in these areas would be if there are yellow line or planning restrictions in place. Our website does not currently contain motor home parking information as there has not been a need to display this in the past, we are however always striving to improve our services and provide as much information as possible to our customers. We will update our website to provide information on car parks where motorhomes can and cannot park asap.
