Although we will always offer an olive branch to Scarborough Borough Council (SBC), it would be churlish if we did not make offers to resolve our current differences.
As a gesture of goodwill, we are willing to work with SBC to “accommodate” our meeting on 5 December. If SBC would like to suggest what we consider an appropriate location, we will happily use it.
In the long-term, if SBC are willing to make car parks available for unrestricted overnight motorhome parking:
- We will not hold meetings “On Street”.
- We will support SBC to encourage motorhomers to use car parks for unrestricted overnight motorhome parking.
NB: In the past NYCC have stated this would require a “change of use”. I believe this to be incorrect. If NYCC are correct, they most seek a change of use for numerous lay-bys across the NYCC area, which truck drivers use to sleep in. If they are correct, not to do so is unlawful.
As I have a mid morning meeting in Whitby on Monday 23 November, I am willing to meet with SBC to discuss Offer 1 and Offer 2, late morning.

Good Morning Councillor,
Could I please refer you to https://andystrangeway.wordpress.com/2015/11/19/offers-to-sbc/
Could I please ask you all to consider our three offers?
I am of the opinion that it is my civic duty to keep all Councillors informed of developments on this issue. If any Councillor does not want to be kept informed, please let me know and I will remove you from the mailing list.
