Motorhome Parking in Staffordshire.
The information is presented by local authority area.
Staffordshire County Council; Parking Page. Statement 13 December 2013: "We currently have no plans to refer specifically to motorhome parking on our website, in the same way we do not currently identify any other type of vehicle. Our Traffic Regulation Orders do not make any specific mention regarding motorhome vehicles. In effect they are just subject to the same rules on-street as any other vehicle i.e. parking where it is safe to do so and in accordance with any parking restrictions that might be in place (indicated by signs and lines). ".
Alton Towers, Alton, Staffordshire ST10 4DB. Statement 10 February 2014: "I am pleased to confirm that we do cater for motor homes here at the Alton Towers Resort, at a charge of £6.00 per vehicle for one day. On arrival you will be directed to ‘Coach Park 2’, and will be required to leave the resort at the end of the day (no over night stays allowed).". Motorhome parking information has since been added to the web site under Car Parking.
Cannock Chase District Council; Parking Page. Statement 26 November 2013: "There are 2 car parks in our district that could take motorhomes, they are Taylors Lane, Rugeley - WS15 2BX and St, Josephs Church, Lichfield Street, Rugeley - WS15 2EH. Other car parks in our district have height restrictions. Motorhomes may park in these car parks as long as they purchase a valid parking ticket for each bay used. We don't publish motorhome parking information and currently there are no plans to do so."
East Staffordshire Council; Parking Page. The Council does not have designated parking for motor homes on their car parks so on receiving enquiries regarding parking for motor homes, advise the owners depending on the size of the motor home. Should the vehicle be the smaller type i.e. large transit type or smaller, the advice is to park in 2x bays lengthways and purchase 2x P&D tickets for the duration of the stay, also that they choose a quieter area of the car park so as not to cause obstruction to other users. Should the motor home be of a large size i.e. coach size, advice is to park at the bottom end of Meadowside car park (furthest away from the leisure centre), and as long as they are suitably parked and not causing obstruction, can park free from charge. The Council will look at publishing this information on the Parking pages of the web site.
Uttoxeter Race Course. An enquiry regarding motorhome parking was sent on 28 January 2014.
Lichfield District Council; Parking Page. The council currently has no plans to publish motorhome parking information in the future. The council receives very few enquiries regarding motorhome parking so deals with them as and when they arise. (Stated 16 October 2013).
The National Memorial Arboretum, Croxall Road, Alrewas, Staffordshire, DE13 7AR. Information received 29 February 2016: "No problems with parking of motorhomes of normal size (7.5m is fine). You can use the normal car park if there is space or use the overflow car park, the charge is the same as cars, i.e. £3.".
Newcastle under Lyme Council; Parking Page. A reference to motorhome parking will be included when the relevant web page is reviewed, it is anticipated that this will be during 2013. (Stated 18 September 2013). The TRO indicates that vehicles must be wholly within a marked bay and makes no provision for use of multiple bays. A response to a further enquiry was received on 9 February 2016, simply stating "there is no ‘Motorhome Parking’ in the Borough". The best advice that can be given to anyone needing to park there is to make a specific enquiry of the council.
South Staffordshire Council; Parking Page. Statement October 2013: "Motorhome parking is not encouraged on our village car parks as they are provided solely for the parking of cars, motor cycles and light goods vehicles of weight not exceeding 2 tonnes. The parking of larger vehicles (including heavy goods, caravans or camper vans) is not permitted." The council has clarified that all of its car parks listed as "public" on the web site are "village" ones.

Hixon Parish Council; Home Page. The following reply was received to an enquiry made on 8 January 2016 regarding parking at the High Street car park: "During the day yes, but overnight parking of vehicles such as motorhomes is not allowed. The car park is relatively small and can get very busy at times due to activities in the adjacent village hall, so we would prefer it large vehicles only parked there for as short a time-period as possible."
