The following rules are in place for the good management of the park and the benefit of all who use it. These rules form part of the Agreement by which you occupy your pitch in accordance with the Mobile Homes Act 1983 (as amended).


The rules are designed to ensure that all park home residents may live peacefully in unspoilt surroundings and have not been compiled to place unnecessary restrictions on residents. We are sure that, provided the rules are accepted in the right spirit, our park will continue to be a happy community.


1. Complying with the Park’s Site Licence


Park home owners must not do, or allow to be done, anything to the home or the pitch which might breach any of the conditions of the park owner’s site licence. A copy of the current site licence is attached to the Written Statement and is available in the office.
