Complaints over overnight staying at West Angle Bay car park

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority is issuing a reminder that sleeping overnight is not permitted in its car parks, following a number of complaints relating to its car park at West Angle Bay.

The Authority manages around 40 car parks and parking areas in Pembrokeshire but overnight staying is not permitted at any of these locations.

The National Park Authority is reminding people that that sleeping overnight is not permitted in its car parks following complaints regarding its West Angle Bay car park.

A Park Authority spokesperson said: “We have received numerous reports from the local community of people in mobile homes staying overnight in the West Angle Bay car park, sometimes for as long as week.

“There is no shortage of purpose built facilities for those wishing to stay in the National Park overnight and so the use of our car parks by a small minority of caravanners and mobile home drivers is a matter of personal preference, not necessity.

“Those exercising that preference are not only choosing to ignore the existing onsite signage but also  appear to give little or no regard to the consequences of their actions on the local tourism economy, the environment or the overwhelming majority of motorists that do use our car parks reasonably and responsibly.”

The car park at West Angle Bay will now be visited by Pembrokeshire County Council’s Civil Enforcement Officers and persons found using the car park for overnight accommodation risk being issued with a Penalty Charge Notice.
