Flooding Soft Ground and Associated Pleasures

Going back a couple of years, I can remember having
to cancel two bookings with the CC and C&CC, because
of the flooding. One site in Wales and one in Devon.
The Welsh site actually rang us and advised cancellation,
the Devon site said the flooding had not affected the site,
but they did not mention the local roads were impassable!
I got one deposit back but not the other and this is still the case
as long as the site is fine (though the roads are impassable)
you lose your deposit!
Have the two main clubs altered their stance on deposits, given
that these weather patterns are becoming the norm?
On another big website there seems to be a disturbing trend to
seasonal pitches and annual storage rather than towing anymore
This makes sheds out of caravans but people are falling out of love
with proper caravanning and just using these sheds as a cheap "hotel"
room and taking up a touring pitch!

I have a feeling that a lot of people are siting touring vans on seasonal rather than have statics so that they can move their van if they are not happy with the caravan park or rules. I sometimes think how nice it would be to be able to tour for our main hols but have a van not too far away for weekends. It's getting.more and more difficult to book weekends last minute so I can see the attractions of knowing you can get away every weekend if you fancy.

When I booked Rowntree Park, CC site, York a few weeks ago I didn't have to pay a deposit and there was no problem cancelling as I did it online within the 72 hour grace period.

So far as I'm aware, you are expected to pay for your pitch in full on arrival at the site. On the CC website drop-down, 'reason for cancellation' menu, 'adverse weather conditions' is one of the options.

Adverse weather conditions, did not get my deposit back as the site was fine.
This despite national and immediate (local to the site) road closures.
