Caravan site

A licence may be required if you want to use your land as a caravan site.

Please note:

  • an up-to-date layout plan of the site must be included with the application
  • the site must have planning permission before it can be licensed
  • the site licence runs in parallel with planning permission and, therefore, expires at the same time
  • caravan sites for seasonal workers are not exempt
