Roads on Haven sites

Post by dawn12 » 2 years ago

Hi hope someone can help. I believe someone is parking very near to my parents caravan on a Haven site and this person does not have any road tax on the vehicle (I checked the reg on the DVLA website and this confirmed no tax on the vehicle). Is this allowed? I thought Haven site roads were public roads and therefore you would need road tax on any car parked or being driven on the site? Does anyone have the answer to this? Parking is always a problem and so its hardly fair if this car is parking in a valuable space with no road tax. Thanks for any replies in advance.

Yes you are correct the roads are public roads and therefore the normal rules of the road apply. If you have any concerns contact your Park security.

If the car is parked regularly (which it seems to be, to make you so aware of it), I might just check that it isnt an owner - a word in his ear might just do the trick before reporting him?

You do not have road tax discs anymore, they are not issued, so how do you know it hasnt got road tax, also you can't check with DVLA unless you are from a legal agency such as police, insurance company, car dealers etc, if you suspect someone hasnt got road tax you should tell the police then they can officially check it out and if they havn't they will cease the vehicle which could end up being crushed

But is it a designated parking space? And if so, why is it so close to someone's van? Thats the original problem isnt it? Tax checking was an additional issue.

To Keith, sorry I didn't know this existed, when I last worked for one of the said agencies that was the only way you could find out, - it seems the government wants us all to be part of big brother and spy and tell on everyone - I stand corrected
