Part 1 – Introduction
Section 1- Overview of Act
8.This section summarises the main provisions of the Act. It is intended to be a sign posting section and to introduce the 6 key Parts of the Act.
9.These sections explain key terms such as a “regulated site”, a “protected site” and a “local authority Gypsy and Traveller site”.
10.A “Regulated site” is a site in Wales which has at least one mobile home stationed on it for the purposes of human habitation other than a holiday site (or a site which Schedule 1 provides is not to be a regulated site).
11.“Protected Site” means land which is:
a regulated site, or
any site that would be a regulated site but is occupied by a local authority.
12.Whilst holiday sites are excluded from the definition of a regulated site in this Act (and therefore the licensing regime does not apply; nor to a mobile home occupied by site owners, their family, or agents / employees) this section restates the definition of a holiday home site as set out in previous Acts. The meaning of “owner” is set out in section 3.
