EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations prescribe the detail of how local authorities shall exercise their discretion when deciding whether or not to issue or consent to the transfer of a site licence in respect of a relevant protected site. The owner of land which is used as a caravan site is required by section 1 of the Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960 to hold a site licence. These Regulations apply to relevant protected sites only, which are sites which are at least partly residential (not purely holiday sites).

Regulation 3 prescribes the matters which local authorities must have regard to when deciding whether to issue a site licence or to give their consent to the transfer of a site licence.

Regulation 4 provides that a local authority may require an application for consent to the transfer of a site licence to be accompanied by specified information or documents, or that such information or documents should be submitted subsequently.

Regulation 5 sets out the information that local authorities must provide where they refuse to issue or consent to the transfer of a site licence.

Regulation 6 provides a right of appeal to the tribunal in the case of a local authority’s refusal to issue or transfer a site licence and sets out how the appeal may be determined by the tribunal.

Regulation 7 makes a minor amendment to the Mobile Homes (Selling and Gifting) England Regulations 2013, to clarify the additional prescribed grounds upon which a refusal order may be sought by a private registered provider of social housing, seeking to prevent the occupier of a mobile home from selling or gifting the home to a particular proposed occupier.
