Stop this unfair discrimination
AS a motor home user, I have campaigned for years against the obvious official discrimination against them with height barriers.
I have caused the Caravan Club to revise its ideas and policies towards barriers on a discriminatory basis, local councils to allow them into recycling plants and so on so without any sensible foundation, and I appeal to Lincolnshire County Council to look at this afresh.
For a start the complaints against them are hardly from motor home users and are thus probably based on no more than pure jealousy of non-owners.
I would be surprised if either Councillor Davie or Steve Palmer are motor homers since their ideas about them are so jaundiced.

Did they even consult motor caravanners about the solution?
Of course there should be no over-nighters at public car parks and the vast majority of motor home users wouldn't do that or even condone it, so isn't it wrong then to discriminate against this large spending group simply because of a few selfish people?
Why not clamp vehicles on site between say 9pm and 5am?
That would be quite a simple solution and the mere threat of it would certainly deter such people.
May I point out that these vehicles are not only taxed as private cars, but when on holiday, it is the sole transport for people enjoying and visiting our coast. If it's a question of money, then by all means charge by the day to park during daylight hours.
How ironic that many commercial vans will pass under these barriers but people enjoying the coast cannot do so.
Can I also point out that some of these vans are registered for disabled as indeed ours is so Councillor Davie is discriminating against the disabled when on holiday.
So as there is no real justification for this Draconian measure, one can only conclude that it's more about those who do not motor caravan spoiling life for those who do.
In failing to apply other options I think the council could leave itself open to court action over its policy and should revise it before that happens.
