Motorhome Parking in West Midlands.
The information is presented by local authority area.
Birmingham City Council; Parking Page; Park & Ride Page. Currently Birmingham City Council does not operate any car parks that are suitable to accommodate motorhomes. There are several reasons for this including that vehicles parking in Council Pay and Display Car Parks must park within the bay markings or they will be liable to receive a Penalty Charge Notice. In addition most in the City Centre have height restrictions of a maximum 2.1 metres with the exception of Navigation Street and Ludgate Hill Car Parks. (Stated 30 September 2013).
In December 2015 I noticed an FOI Response from 2012, which conflicted with the information provided in 2013 in that it said that motorhomes could use the Coach & Lorry Park. Subsequent enquiry prompted this response on 10 February 2016: "For absolute clarity we are not able to accommodate mobile homes in our Coach and Lorry Park. I understand in 2012 the situation may have been publicised differently but since that time the position has been reviewed in light of safety concerns with members of the public (especially children) using the facility for mobile home activities and potentially coming in to conflict with heavy goods vehicles.".
Cadbury World. An enquiry regarding motorhome parking was sent on 23 December 2013.
Coventry City Council; Parking Page; Motorhome Parking Information. Park & Ride Page. The following reply was received on 17 December 2015 to an enquiry regarding use of the Park & Ride: "I write following your enquiry regarding parking motor homes at the War Memorial Park. You are right in that there are no height restrictions at the Park and Ride Car Park due to the need for buses to gain access. The car park is for visitors to the park and for those wishing to use the Park and Ride facility. We do have some regular visitors who come with motorhomes and we have no objections to them parking here for this purpose. The Car Park is shut and locked at night and the times are on the notice boards. At this time of year the car park is not too busy so if you took up two spaces this would not cause a major problem. This could be an issue in the summer though as space is at a premium.".
Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council; Parking Page. The TROs are published on the Enforcement Page. The Type 2 Off Street Parking Places Order 2008 limits use of car parks to vehicles under 6ft 6ins in height, and 30cwt unladen.
Black Country Living Museum, Tipton Rd, Dudley, West Midlands, DY1 4SQ. On 19 December 2013, BCLM stated "We don't have any restrictions re motor homes parking on our car park and in fact, when we get asked we even say they can park overnight should they wish (although they cannot remove their vehicles from the site once the barriers are locked). We will look at getting a message to this effect on our website soon".
Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council; Parking Page. Statement 11 December 2013: "Sandwell does not provide specific parking for motorhomes and the council controlled public car parks have height restriction barriers to prevent access to larger vehicles. There has not been any demand for, or the budget to provide specialised parking for this specific group of vehicles. It is expected that drivers find a safe and legal parking space themselves."
Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council; Parking Page. Statement October 2013: The Council cannot currently accommodate motor homes in any Council operated car parks, this is due primarily to size constraints. We advise any motorists with a specific parking request to contact us directly on 0121 704 6111 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to see if we can arrange anything in special circumstances. Our parking pages provide some information on our car parks, in particular where height restrictions apply. These are currently being revised and the Council is due to roll out its revised website in the next few months.
Walsall Council; Parking Page; Motorhome Parking Page.
Wolverhampton City Council; Parking Page. No specific information provided but advice received previously is that motorhomes can use the Faulkland Street coach park off Little Lane. Statement 2 December 2013: "As previously advised we can provide limited parking arrangements for Motorhomes in Wolverhampton. Our parking pages are currently under review and I will be including the Motorhome parking information upon completion. I expect to complete the revision of our parking pages and the information to be live by the end of January 2014.".
Wolverhampton Race Course. An enquiry regarding motorhome parking was sent on 28 January 2014.
