Licences - Caravan sites
The Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960 requires land to be used as a caravan site to be licensed by the local authority. The occupier of any land cannot use their land as a caravan site unless they hold a valid site licence.
No caravan site licence can be issued if either the land does not have planning permission for use as a caravan site, or the applicant has had a site licence revoked within the previous three years.
The occupier of the land must apply in writing to the council for a caravan site licence. For further information and how to apply, see Caravan and camping site licence.
