Caravan and Tent Site Licensing
Caravan Site Licensing
A caravan includes holiday caravans, residential caravans, touring caravans and dormobiles.
The Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960 prohibits the use of land as a caravan site unless the occupier holds a site licence issued by the local authority. There are a number of exemptions to this licensing requirement, such as:
- Incidental use within the boundary of a dwelling house
- Sites approved by certain organisations i.e. caravan club etc.
- Building and engineering sites
- Traveling Showman sites
- Sites occupied by the local authority
