Using a public car park for a meet??? by humphshumphs

Hi All,

Just a quick question.... What is the legality of using a public (council) car park for a club meet?
Looking at a very underused car park with a nice family pub/restaurant next to it for a meet of 75's and ZT's.

I suppose it depends what you want to achieve at the meet, if its a hands on " nano " type meet then i guess its a no no, or you would need to approach the council for permission. If its just a gathering and chatting with a trip to the family pub/ restaurant next door then i personally see no problem .

You would probably be wise to contact the local council in any case

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

I go to a monthly meet organized once a month in a large car park attached to public house its organized by one of our other clubs for MG's and 75s the organizer has done a deal with pub I guess and they benefit from extra trade on a sunday when many stay home for lunch !! but I would check with council as was suggested our meets tend to be lively and good chat is had by all
