Lafayette council limits travel trailer use


LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Travel trailers can no longer be used as permanent homes in rural Lafayette Parish.

The Advocate reports the Lafayette City-Parish Council voted 5-4 on Tuesday to approve a new regulation that bans travel trailers from being used as a residence for more than 180 days in any calendar year in unincorporated areas of the parish.

Zoning laws already prohibit living in a travel trailer within the Lafayette city limits.

Planning, Zoning and Codes Director Eleanor Bouy said the new regulation was prompted in part by a growing number of complaints about homeowners renting space in their driveways for travel trailers to house itinerant workers.
