Time to welcome the motorhomers
WE have over the summer months read with growing concern the arguments against and negativity towards motorhomers.
It would seem that the few owners who abuse and ignore bylaws and parking restrictions are being used as a "sledgehammer to crack a nut" an excuse to restrict, then drive out motorhomes from Lincolnshire by parish and county councilors who clearly have a prejudice against motorhomers.
Whilst we do not condone in any way the misuse of facilities and amenities by the minority, perhaps it is about time that the other side of the story was heard and these councilLors did their homework.
There are a growing number of motorhomers who now represent a sizeable amount of potential tourism to the area.

The majority of whom are retirees, well past the age to cause mayhem or go in for wild partying, mostly having a love of the countryside and wildlife and, if fit enough, walking or cycling.
Not to mention convivial meals with like-minded people using local pubs, cafes, restaurants etc which, contrary to Councillor Davie's assertion all helps the local economy.
To say that motorhomers do not contribute to the economy ignores the fact that in the areas that we visit, we spend money, not only on meals but by staying on local sites owned by local business and trips to craft fairs, tourist attractions, local gift shops etc, and in our case as residents of East Lindsey, we pay council tax, joined local wildlife associations and also contribute by doing voluntary work.
Would it not be possible for motorhomers to be issued, for a fair charge, a card that could activate a barrier to allow us to enter sites such as Huttoft Terrace?
No card – No entry, you would then know who we are if we outstayed our welcome.
Does Lincolnshire really want to gain the reputation of being unwelcoming to a growing number of motorhomers?
After all it does not take us long to work out the councils that welcome us, and they will be the places that our wheels and our money will take us in the future.
