LETTER: Caravan Club

It does seem a pity that more could not be done to develop the Northbrook Farm Caravan Club site, in Titnore Way.

This is situated in an excellent location as it has easy access to the A27, a large supermarket close by, garden centres, buses and Highdown Hill.

The toilet/shower block was closed a few years ago and there have been constant rumours of the site shutting.

I would think that if the Caravan Club could be given some guarantee of the land continuing to be available then they would be willing to refurbish the whole site, but obviously do not want to spend money if it is only for the short term.

It will be a pity if motor home owners wishing to pay day visits to Worthing – and spend money in the town – are deterred by restrictive parking regulations instituted because of the situation that you have reported.

My wife and I have been motor home owners for over 40 years and, like many others, have had to turn away from towns because of height barriers, weight restrictions and other bars to us parking.

But I am glad to say that many towns have taken a more enlightened attitude, realising that motor home owners do spend money, and have made provision for the parking of our vehicles.

Canterbury and Lyme Regis are just two. Even at the Amberley Heritage Museum six spaces have been allocated – sadly last weekend two were occupied by cars and one by a van.
