Local authorities are the licensing authority for caravan sites in their area. Operators of caravan sites must apply to the local authority for a licence to operate. Local authorities can attach conditions to a site licence they issue, and this document provides guidance on the licence conditions they may wish to put in place.
The purpose of this document is to provide model standards for the licence conditions that a local authority can put in place when it issues, or reviews, a licence for a relevant permanent site (a caravan site with permanent residents). Such caravan sites are often described as mobile home or park home sites.
