Caravan and mobile home licensing

Apply for a caravan site licence

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.
