jonharvey writes "Kent County Council to Ban Over Night Parking in Sea Side Streets in South East Kent! WHY?Recently whilst walking down to the beach in Dumpton Gap near Broadstairs in Kent, I spied a sign on a lighting pole which details Kent County Councils plans to ban overnight parking from a number of sea side streets in South East Kent. I know this included the Dumpton Gap area and also a number of other sea side roads in South East Kent. But why? For what purpose or possible gain could they be considering doing such a thing?I have done some motorhoming on the Continent and there are always places to park, where numbers of motor home congregate. I think this councils over there realise that Motorhomes bring money into the area and do not see them as a threat but something they want to attract. Why do English council officials act in such an irresponible unwelcoming manner. As far as jobs are concerned South East Kent is having real problems. The announcement of closure of the biggest local employer in the area at the beginning of 2011, has really hit the local communities hard. Unemployment is considerably above the national average.The sign asked for comment to be returned to the council by the 1st week in September. This is something we must do!! Otherwise further areas to park up for a night will dissapear! Soon the only place for us to park will be our own drives!"
