Campervans in the Cleveland Way Car Park

Campervans in the Cleveland Way Car Park

The council has received many complaints about the motorhomes in the Cleveland Way Car Park - numbers, noise, waste disposal etc. These complaints have been referred to Ryedale District Council who own and manage the car park. I have been in touch about evening visits by enforcement, the provision of facilities for waste disposal, safe spacing of campervans, and if numbers are restricted to the allocated space the potential problems that may arise by on-street parking elsewhere in Helmsley as I have noticed a couple by The Old Cemetery gates. The matter is on the town council agenda for its meeting on the 21 June, venue to be arranged. In the meantime, please report problems and anti-social behaviour to communityteam@ryedale.gov.uk and/or the RDC Community Link Officer jack.moore@ryedale.gov.uk. RDC has provided the following update just now:

"The first Enforcement Officer to start on shift each day will visit the Cleveland Way car park as their first location and are aware that campervans / motorhomes are not permitted in the central section of the car park. We will keep this arrangement under review in case issues arise elsewhere in Ryedale that require the attention of the Enforcement team.

New signage informing motorhomes that overnight parking is only permitted in the rear section of the car park has been designed and is will be manufactured and installed ASAP. Further signage reminding users about the requirements of the site such no no BBQ's, remove all litter / waste etc will also be produced. In addition, new red lining and wording has been requested for the central section to be clear to motorhomes that no parking is permitted in that section of the car park, and patrols by the RDC Civil Enforcement Officers will also take place in addition to the Parking Enforcement Officers. Our intention is for these actions to be implemented within the next two week."
