Residential mobile home sites also known as park home sites, and mixed sites with residential and holiday mobile homes need to be licenced under the Mobile Homes (Wales) Act 2013.
Site owners of existing sites will need to make an application for a new licence as the licence they currently hold for residential caravans/mobile homes under the Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960 will no longer be valid after 1st April 2015, however, for mixed sites the old licence will continue to apply for the holiday and touring caravan element of the site.
Planning permission for residential mobile homes will need to be in place first and the site owner or manager will need to be a ‘fit and proper' person to hold such a licence
For residents selling or buying a residential mobile home new rules are in place.
Additional Mobile Home Guidance can be found on the Welsh Government website
We attach conditions to licences, and if site licence conditions aren't met, we can take enforcement action which includes the serving of Compliance Notices or Fixed Penalty Notices.
Site licence conditions are designed to protect the health, safety and welfare of residents and covers things like drainage, distances between mobile homes and so on.
The Model Standards 2008 for Caravan Sites in Wales will be attached to all Mobile Homes Sites in Pembrokeshire.
Site rules are not compulsory, but where a site has rules these will need to be sent to us so they can be viewed online by the public. More information about site rules and the process for reviewing them can be found on the Welsh Government website.
