Caravans Act (Northern Ireland) 2011


6.The consultation process was initiated in June 2008 where in excess of 200 key stakeholders were advised of John McCallister's intention to create a private member's Bill to legislate for the regulation of permanent residential and static holiday caravan sites. The stakeholders included caravan site owners, residential associations, caravan manufacturers, district councils, recognised industry organisations and caravan owners themselves.

7.A further consultation was undertaken in October 2009 where stakeholders had sight of the first version of the draft Bill. This did create concern over some of the sections and the Bill was significantly re-drafted by Government on John McCallister’s behalf.
