Caravan Sites

It is a general requirement for caravan sites to be licensed by the local authority. Sites will also normally require planning permission and it would be advisable to make pre-planning enquiries with the Development Control Section on (023) 9258 4242 or by e-mailing planning@gosport.gov.uk.

    

The Caravan and Control of Development Act 1960 requires the Council to licence sites that have gained or are in the process of obtaining the required planning permission to operate as a recognised caravan, mobile home or park home site.

 

On 26 March 2013 the Government passed the Mobile Homes Act 2013 (MHA 2013) which is designed to give greater protection to occupiers of residential caravan and mobile homes on “relevant protected sites” or residential sites. From 26 May 2013 this legislation introduced changes to the sale/gifting of park homes and amendments to existing implied terms relating to the annual pitch fee review procedure on parks.

 

Site Rules - depositing with the Local Authority, and the Local Authority Register of Site Rules

The Mobile Homes (Site Rules) (England) Regulations 2014 prescribe the procedure for the making, variation and deletion of site rules on residential mobile home parks. Site Licence Holders must follow a set procedure for changes to be made to “site rules” for a permanent residential home site.

Once the rules have been agreed, they must be deposited with the local authority and we will publish them on our website. Please note that Gosport Borough Council does not have any enforcement powers to object to site rules and you should seek legal advice if you disagree with rules in place for your site. Advice on site rules can be obtained from Lease – www.parkhomes.lease-advice.org. Below are the site rules that have been deposited with Gosport Borough Council.

 

All Site Rules received by Gosport Borough Council are required to be published under Regulation 16 of the Mobile Homes (Site Rules) (England) Regulations 2014. The Site Rules that are published to the Register as required by the above Regulation are an exact copy as presented to Gosport Borough Council. The Council accepts no responsibility if there are errors or omissions regarding the site rules.
