Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Re-siting of caravan

10.—(1) The owner shall be entitled to require that the occupier’s right to station the caravan is exercisable for any period in relation to another pitch forming part of any protected site of the owner (“the other pitch”) if (and only if)—

(a)on the application of the owner, the court is satisfied that the other pitch is broadly comparable to the occupier’s original pitch and that it is reasonable for the caravan to be stationed on the other pitch for that period; or

(b)the owner needs to carry out essential repair or emergency works that can only be carried out if the caravan is moved to the other pitch for that period, and the other pitch is broadly comparable to the occupier’s original pitch.

(2) If the owner requires the occupier to station the caravan on the other pitch so that the owner can replace, or carry out repairs to, the base on which the caravan is stationed, the owner must if the occupier so requires, or the court on the application of the occupier so orders, secure that the caravan is returned to the original pitch on the completion of the replacement or repairs.

(3) The owner shall pay all the costs and expenses incurred by the occupier in connection with the caravan being moved to and from the other pitch.

(4) In this paragraph and in paragraph 13 “essential repair or emergency works” means—

(a)repairs to the base on which the caravan is stationed or to any amenities on the site;

(b)works or repairs needed to comply with any relevant legal requirements; or

(c)works or repairs in connection with restoration following flood, landslide or other natural disaster.
