Central Bedfordshire County Council

Central Bedfordshire website gives the following information:
Only three of our car parks allow sufficient access and manoeuvrability to accommodate motor homes. All of our car parks are covered by Traffic Regulation Orders which contain height restrictions and a requirement to park within a bay, however the following car parks will make exceptions (including relaxed height restrictions) for motor homes provided the following requirements are met:
where a motor home cannot fit into a single parking bay due to its length, the driver must purchase two pay and display tickets for the two bays occupied
no form of camping, sleeping overnight or cooking are allowed. There are no facilities for these activities.



Dunstable - Ashton Square LU6 3SN - 387 spaces access from West Street via St Mary's Gate only.

Luton Borough Council

The Parking and Enforcement Plan 2013 for Luton states that all car parks have height restrictions. I have enquired from the council if this is correct and could they do something about it for us motorhomers. The answer was no the height barriers will stay 'to prevent unauthorised encampments'. There was no recommendation for where a motorhome could park instead a phone number to call 'for assistance in relation to parking a larger vehicle'. The number is 0158 254 8523.
