Commencement Orders bringing legislation that affects this Act into force:
(1)This section applies to any land in the area of a [F1district council] which is or forms part of a common, not being land falling within any of the following descriptions, that is to say—
(a)land to which section one hundred and ninety-three of the M1Law of Property Act 1925 (which relates to the rights of the public over certain commons and waste lands), for the time being applies;
(b)land which is subject to a scheme under Part I of the M2Commons Act 1899 (under which schemes may be made for the regulation and management of certain commons);
(c)land as respects which a site licence is for the time being in force.
(2)[F2The council of a district] may make with respect to any land in their area to which this section applies an order prohibiting, either absolutely or except in such circumstances as may be specified in the order, the stationing of caravans on the land for the purposes of human habitation.
(3)Without prejudice to the provisions of section one of this Act, any person who stations a caravan on any land in contravention of an order under this section for the time being in force with respect to the land shall be guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding [F3level 1 on the standard scale].
(4)It shall be the duty of a [F1district council] to take all reasonable steps to secure that copies of any order under this section which is for the time being in force with respect to any land in their area are so displayed on the land as to give to persons entering thereon adequate warning of the existence of the order, and the council shall have the right to place on the land such notices as they consider necessary for the performance of their duty under this subsection.
(5)An order under this section may be revoked at any time by a subsequent order made thereunder by the [F1district council], or may be so varied either so as to exclude any land from the operation of the order or so as to introduce any exception, or further exception, from the prohibition imposed by the order.
(6)Where the whole or a part of any land with respect to which an order under this section is in force ceases to be land to which this section applies, the said order shall thereupon cease to have effect with respect to the said land or part; and where an order ceases under this subsection to have effect with respect to a part only of any land, the [F1district council] shall cause any copy of the order which is displayed on that part of the land with respect to which the order continues in force to be amended accordingly.
(7)The provisions of the Second Schedule to this Act shall, subject as therein provided, have effect with respect to orders under this section.
(8)In this section the word “common” includes any land subject to be enclosed under the Inclosure Acts 1845 to 1882, and any town or village green.
[F4(9)This section and the Second Schedule to this Act shall apply in relation to land in Wales as if for every reference to a district council or to the district council (however expressed), or which falls to be construed as such a reference, there were substituted a reference to a Welsh county council or county borough council or (as the case may be) the Welsh county council or county borough council.]
