North Tyneside Council; Parking Page. North Tyneside Council do not have any bays in their car parks that have been marked for the specific use of Motorhomes. If a vehicle is too large to fit within a marked bay, then we enable vehicles to encroach into adjacent bays provided that they obtain a parking ticket for each bay that the vehicle encroaches into. (Statement made 9 October 2013). Some car parks are restricted to cars & light vans only - see the Tariffs Page - so safest to stick to other car parks unless a specific check is made first.
