Mobile park homes

Mobile park homes

By law, all residential mobile home sites, and those for static holiday caravans and touring caravans, must have planning permission and be licensed with the local authority.

We are responsible for ensuring that the site conditions attached to the licence are met by the owner of the site. The owner must ensure that the residents, tenants or users of their site, also comply with the site conditions.

Site conditions

The site conditions set out minimum health and safety standards for the site and cover things such as:

  • Access
  • Site boundaries
  • Layout (including minimum distances between homes)
  • Fire risk assessment
  • Gas installations and storage
  • Electrical safety
  • Water supply
  • Drainage, sanitation and washing facilities.
