Motorhome Parking in Teesside/Cleveland.
The information is presented by local authority area.
Hartlepool Borough Council; Parking Page. Statement October 2013: "The Seaton Carew car park and Hartlepool Maritime Experience are open sites with parking bays large enough to accommodate vehicles of this length. Many of our off street car parks have either height access restrictions or prohibition orders on vehicles unable to park wholly within the marked bays. In addition to the car parks, we do however have several "unregulated" on street parking areas which can accommodate motor homes. Our website does not at present mention motor home provision, however I accept that there is still a parking requirement for such vehicles and I will therefore include an explanatory note on our website as and when our parking pages are next updated.". Despite several subsequent reminders (following updates) the council has not added the note to the page.
Middlesbrough Borough Council; Parking Page. There is a note in the information for Cannon Park coach & lorry park that it is also available for the parking of motorhomes and mini buses.
There are other facilities outside the town centre as follows:
Bluebell Beck (free - just off the A19 junction with the A1130 so good for a break); Pallister Park (free); Hemlington Lake (free); Stewart Park (free - locked at night); Newham Grange Farm (admission charge to the farm - locked at night); Teesaurus Park (free - located in Riverside Park industrial estate, good for a walk along the bank of the Tees).
Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council; Parking Page. There is no specific mention of motorhomes on the web site but there are details for large vehicles under Weight Limits. If in doubt it is best to check before parking.
The Coast Road car parks at Redcar & Marske often appear on lists of places where "wild camping" is allowed. Overnight use of those two car parks is no longer allowed after a parking order amendment implemented on 1 January 2016.
The car parks at Kirkleatham Museum and the top of Birk Brow (just outside Guisborough on the Whitby road) are usable by motorhomes.
Redcar Race Course. An enquiry regarding motorhome parking was sent on 28 January 2014.
Stockton on Tees Borough Council; Parking Page. Statement 21 January 2014: "None of the Council car parks in the Borough specifically provide parking for motorhomes. However providing the motorhome vehicle is below 7.5 tonnes and is able to fit within a standard size parking space, ie 2.4m wide and 4.8m in length, then all Council car parks would be suitable for a motorhome to park, except Alberto Street which has a height restriction. A list of all the Council car parks can be found in the annual report, which will hopefully be published by the end of the month.".
The car parks at Billingham Beck Country Park, Billingham; Wynyard Woodland Park, Thorpe Thewles; Cowpen Bewley Woodland Park, Billingham; Preston Hall Museum, Stockton and Tees Barrage, Stockton are usable by motorhomes.
Teesside Shopping Park, Stockton-on-Tees. All the parking spaces at Teesside Park are standard car size and there are no height restrictions. Persons driving motor homes onto Teesside Park are welcome when shopping - There is no long term or overnight parking allowed on site.
