Caravan and mobile home licensing

Caravan site licensing

The Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960 (CSCDA 1960) requires private owners to obtain a licence from the Council to operate a permanent residential caravan site. For the purposes of the act a mobile home also comes within the definition of a caravan, and no site licence can be issued unless the site has planning permission.

Apply for, change or transfer a caravan or camping site licence

The licencing of sites within this area is carried out by the Private Sector Housing team.  In issuing a licence the Council can attach conditions relating to the amenity of the site and the health and safety of residents.

You can read supporting information about the Mobile Homes Fit and Proper Person Application Form and apply here.

Exemption from licensing are available for certain reasons such as:

  • Caravan used for short periods
  • Sites run by recognised caravan organisations
  • Caravans occupied by agriculture or forestry workers, or travelling showmen

View our register of licensed caravan sites.

We partner with North Warwickshire Borough Council to deliver a joint Private Sector Housing Service and undertake the service on their behalf.
