Licence summary

  • Restricting when caravans can be on the site for human habitation or restricting the number of caravans that can be on the site at any one time
  • Controlling the types of caravans on the site
  • Controlling the positioning of the caravans or regulating the use of other structures and vehicles including tents.
  • To ensure steps are taken to enhance the land, including planting/replanting bushes and trees
  • Fire safety and fire fighting controls
  • To ensure that sanitary and other facilities, services and equipment are supplied and maintained.

Eligibility criteria

The applicant must be entitled to use the land as a caravan site. Licences will not be issued to applicants who have had a site licence revoked within three years of the current application.

Regulation summary

Application evaluation process

Applications for site licences are made to the local authority in whose area the land is situated.

Applications must be in writing, electronic mail is also acceptable, should detail the land the application concerns and a plan showing the site and the location of the caravans.

Will tacit consent apply?

Yes. This means that you will be able to act as though your application is granted if you have not heard from us by the end of the target completion date.

Failed application redress

You are advised to take up any issue with us first.

If a licence holder is refused an application to alter a condition they may appeal to the local Magistrates’ court. The appeal must be made within 28 days of the written notification of the refusal and a notice of appeal must be served on the District Council.

Licence holder redress

You are advised to take up any issue with us first.

If a licence holder wishes to appeal against a condition attached to a licence they may appeal to the local Magistrates’ court. The Appeal must be made within 28 days of the licence being issued.

We may alter conditions at any time but must give licence holders the opportunity to make representations about the proposed changes. If a licence holder disagrees with the alterations they may appeal to the local Magistrates’ court. The appeal must be made within 28 days of the written notification of the alteration and a notice of appeal must be served on the District Council.

Consumer complaint

We would always recommend that in the event of a complaint the first contact is made with the trader by you - preferably in the form of a letter (with proof of delivery). If that has not worked, if you are located in the UK, Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline will give you advice. From outside the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre.
