If your site is a Holiday Park please go to our Caravan and park sites - leisure and touring page.
The Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960 requires local authorities to license sites that have planning permission (or are in the process of acquiring planning permission) to operate as a caravan, mobile home or park home site. West Lindsey District Council attaches conditions to the licences of all caravan and park home sites, specifying the minimum standards that must be achieved and maintained by the site owner.
The Caravan Site Act 1968 contains provisions for the protection of occupiers against eviction or harassment and is enforced by the Council. In 2013, the Mobile Homes Act 2013 gave greater protection to occupiers of residential caravan and mobile homes on "relevant protected sites" or residential sites.
New from July 2021 - the Mobile Homes (Requirement for Manager of Site to be Fit and Proper Person) (England) Regulations 2020 requires all residential sites to have a fit and proper person included in the local register. Please see our fit and proper person page for more information and the application forms.
Inspections and complaints
West Lindsey District Council no longer undertake annual site inspections or charge an annual site licence fee.
If you think that the site owner is not looking after the park properly or is not providing adequate services, you should check what their duties are under the site licence. A copy of the licence should be displayed in a prominent place and can be viewed on our register below.
West Lindsey District Council will continue to respond to and investigate complaints of non-compliance with site conditions and take relevant action. Residents of park homes can report non-compliance with site rules using the residential caravan site complaint reporting form.
