Section 5 - Prohibition on use of land as regulated site without site licence

13.Section 5 restates section 1(1) and (2) of the Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960 (“the 1960 Act”). It provides that using land as a regulated site without a site licence is an offence, but increases the fine from level 4 to level 5 on the standard scale. When section 85 of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 comes into force a level 5 fine will become an unlimited fine (currently £5000 at November 2013).
