Subject: Response to Complaints re Motor Caravans TRO
Dear Mr Strangeway
I refer to the complaint made by you and the National Motorhome Organisation (NMO) on 9 July 2014 regarding your alleged failure by NYCC to produce a definitive statement of reasons to accompany the consultation for the proposed Traffic Regulation Order to prevent Motor Caravans from parking overnight. Your view was that this had prevented the NMO and yourself personally from submitting a response as part of the consultation process and thereby denying both yourself and the NMO a legal right to respond to the issues consulted upon.
Having reviewed the consultation process to date, the County Council have taken the decision to re-consult on the proposed Order, which will involve taking the following steps:-
  • Carrying out an Equality Impact Assessment (EIA), which will detail the purpose of the consultation and how the Council’s Public Sector Equality Duty under the Equality Act 2010 will be discharged; The EIA will address the proposed mitigation against any potential impacts considered.
  • Providing further clarification surrounding the proposals, their purpose, and possible impacts of the proposals (via a Statement of Reasons).
  • Advertising the proposed Order in the “Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly”.
The County Council will notify you when the consultation commences. I hope that this will serve to address both of the issues you raise and also update you on the current position with regard to the proposed Order.
The current temporary restrictions will remain in force, pending the determination of the proposed Permanent Order.
Yours sincerely
Richard Pennell
Legal Officer – Environment

Hi Tony
Andy stipulated that magazine in his challenge. The Motorhome Tourism Organisation stipulated the Motorhome Press in our reply to the consultation.
