LAFAYETTE, La. — On Tuesday, the Lafayette City-Parish Council voted 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, reports The Advocate.
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 to house traveling workers, writes The Advocate.
Zoning laws already prohibit living in a travel trailer within Lafayette city limits.
