Caravan and mobile home licensing

Mobile Homes Act 2013

The CSCDA 1960 has been amended by Mobile Homes Act 2013 (MHA 2013) which introduced a new site licensing regime for relevant protected sites (that is mobile home sites and mixed sites of both residential and holiday mobile homes) and gives better protection for residents.

The MHA 2013 allows the council to charge a fee to the site owner on an annual basis as well as for issuing and transferring a licence.  The MHA 2013 allows a range of enforcement options in this situation including service of legal notices to require improvement.

Apart from removing the need to gain consent from the site owner to sell, the MHA 2013 also required the site owner to deposit a copy of the site rules with the Council. Site rules deal with issues relating to the day to day management of the site and will set by the site owner in consultation with the residents.
