Allow Jersey Residents to camp overnight in their motorhomes in delegated areas around the island with use of a permit.
At present it is illegal in Jersey to camp overnight in your motorhome. If found guilty of this offence the vehicle owner can be fined up to £500.00.
In accordance with the Planning and Environment Guidelines Jersey Residents are not permitted to use their motorhomes/caravans for habitable purposes whilst it is in the island.
You may only use your caravan/motorhomes in the following campsites:
Rozel Camping Park.
Please see the below links for further information:
As Jersey Residents we wish to petition against these restrictions to allow us to camp overnight in our motorhomes in areas other than the above locations.
We understand the frustrations with small minorities that are disruptive to the surrounding environment and litter the areas, however the majority of us are respectful of the environment and just want to enjoy the beautiful scenery Jersey has to offer.
We would like a permit to be issued allowing residents to camp overnight in 'agreed'locations of the island.
Understandably there may be restrictions on how many nights a vehicle can be inhabited for on any given occasion and that those that violate the terms of the permit will have it removed and could be fined but for those of us that are responsible will have an amazing opportunity to enjoy the island the way it should be.
Please join this petition if you are passionate about this cause.
Thank you for your time.
