Park (mobile) homes

Park homes offer affordable, accessible accommodation, usually for older residents who prefer a tenure that offers some form of stability and ownership.  

All residential park home sites need planning permission, as well as a site licence which sets out the standards for site layout, access, services and safety requirements.   

Visit the GOV.UK park (mobile homes) website.  

We enforce these site licence conditions with which the site owner must comply. Contact us if you’re concerned that your site does not comply with these conditions.  

Certain sites may be exempt from these requirements if they’re used infrequently or controlled by an exempted organisation like the Caravan Club.

Licences

We license mobile home sites under the Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960. The site licence relates to the following areas:

  • density and spacing of park homes
  • road, gateways, paths and hardstandings
  • fire safety and firefighting equipment
  • storage of LPG cylinders
  • electrical installation
  • water, drainage and waste disposal
  • car parking and site notices.

Any site with communal facilities, such as laundry, toilet blocks and function rooms, or where units are rented out, the site owner must carry out and make available the latest version of the fire risk assessment. This is required under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. A copy of the risk assessment must also be made available to Dorset Fire and Rescue.  

We regularly inspect sites but are happy to investigate enquiries by residents about their park and discuss the issues with the site owners.

Site rules  

Please note that we do not have any enforcement powers to object to site rules and you should seek legal advice if you disagree with rules in place for your site.  

Get advice on site rules from the Park Home Advice Line on 0207 383 9800. This is run by the Leasehold Advisory Service.  

Disclaimer regarding site rules  

All site rules received by us are required to be published under Regulation 16 of the Mobile Homes (Site Rules) (England) Regulations 2014.

The site rules published on this page, as required by the above regulation, are an exact copy as received. We accept no responsibility for any errors or omissions regarding the site rules.  

We do not endorse or approve these site rules and are not responsible for their content or enforcement.  

Read information on the changes introduced by the Mobile Home Act 2013.

The government has also extended the role of the Leaseholder Advisory Service so that park home residents can contact them for help and advice. You may find this helpful where the local authority does not have a role such as site rules, pitch fees or the selling/gifting of park homes.
