Laws banning campervans from staying overnight on public land in Jersey could be overturned.

Since February campervans have only been allowed to park for 12 hours in certain areas.

The change came after complaints of antisocial behaviour and poor hygiene.

The States has agreed to look into a permit system for motorhome owners and more sites for them to stay on.

Despite the ban, vehicles had been using the carpark at Le Port. But when the States enforced the ban, campaigners pushed for politicians to review the whole system.

Senator Steve Pallett put forward a proposition to reverse the law.

He addressed a rally of campervanners at the weekend saying the States should investigate and facilitate this growing hobby.

After today's vote, States members will look into more sites and explore options for a permit system.
