Mobile Homes (Wales) Act 2013

Section 52 - Site rules

113.Section 52 makes provision about “site rules” (as defined in subsection (2)). Under the provisions (which do not apply to local authority Gypsy and Traveller sites) every site rule will be an express term of the pitch agreement between the site owner and the mobile home occupier creating certainty for both parties. These provisions will apply to existing pitch agreements as well as to those made after the provisions come into force.

114.The provisions confer a power on the Welsh Ministers to make regulations about the procedure to be followed by a site owner who is proposing to make new site rules or to vary or delete existing site rules, for example, requiring prior consultation with occupiers. The Welsh Ministers may also make regulations which:-

  • Render existing site rules (i.e. ones pre-dating the commencement of section 52) of no effect by such date as set out in the regulations;

  • Prescribe matters in relation to which site rules may not be made;

  • Establish a process for the resolution of disputes arising between site owners and mobile home occupiers regarding the making, varying or deleting site rules;

  • Require a local authority to keep and publish an up-to-date register of site rules for protected sites in its area.
