For A Third Time – No PCN

For the third time Scarborough Borough Council (SBC) declined to issue ASOP a Parking Ticket (PCN) last night as I joined five motorhomers parked up on West Cliff, Whitby in the “No Motor Caravan” area.

The Facts

  1. 38 of the 50 SBC Councillors read the “No Contract” email prior to 23.00 last night. This included Councillor Joe Plant. In addition, Head of Legal, Lisa Dixon.
  2. I informed Councillor Joe Plant, via text, of our exact location at 20.00.
  3. Local Traffic Wardens were aware that we were holding a meeting
  4. No Police attended – for the second time.
  5. No SBC employee attended – for the second time.

SBC Decline To Issue ASOP A PCN Because:

  1. We each displayed an ASOP No Contract notice.
  2. The PCN Code 91 relates to a class not a type – A motorhome is not a class it is a type of vehicle.
  3. The signs relate to motor caravans – those attending ASOP meetings have no table and as such, as per the EU Directive, are not a motor caravan.
  4. Some ASOP supporters are New Travellers – therefore SBC must deal with them via New Traveller legislation. This means they must firstly give legal notice of 48 hours to 14 days for the New Travellers to vacate their “unauthorised site”. Of course this notice can be ignored.

Unanswered Questions

  1. How can a humble, uneducated house-painter have more legal smarts than the North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) legal team?
  2. When will SBC/NYCC accept that they have wasted tax payers money on a folly?
