South Ayrshire Council off street parking for motor caravans

Following health and safety issues raised as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the increase in holiday staycations, dedicated parking bays for Motor Caravans were first introduced in the summer of 2020.

The bays assisted in reducing the unregulated use of South Ayrshire Council car parks and on-street shore front locations by visitors using campervan style vehicles for overnight and long stay parking during the summers of 2020 and 2021.

The £10.00 fee for overnight parking includes use of waste disposal facilities at each site and positive feedback has led the initial one night stay to be increased to allow a maximum three night stay at each car park. This helps to control the amount of vehicles using the car parks and the specially marked bays ensure vehicles are positioned a safe distance apart, whilst also maintaining adequate provision for cars.



Consideration is being given to makes the bays a permanent feature and will allow improvements to be made at each site such as water taps, black waste facilities and, if possible, grey waste facilities.

At the Ayr site, if approval to make the site permanent is granted, a barrier can then be installed to help prevent anti-social activity of car enthusiasts.
