The rules can be downloaded here.


Preface


In these rules:

  • ‘Occupier’ means anyone who occupies a park home, whether under an Agreement to which the Mobile Homes Act 2013 applies or under a tenancy of any other agreementc
  • ‘you’ and ‘your’ refers to the homeowner or other occupier of a park home
  • ‘we’ and ‘our’ refers to the park owner.

These rules are in place to ensure acceptable standards are maintained on the park, which will be of general benefit to occupiers, and to promote and maintain community cohesion. They form part of the Agreement by which homeowners occupy the pitch on accordance with the Mobile Homes Act 1983, as amended. With one exception the rules also apply to any occupiers of park homes who rent their home. The only rule which does not apply to occupiers who rent their home is rule 31 about the colour of the exterior of the home, as someone renting their home would not be responsible for exterior maintenance.

2. You must not erect fences or other means of enclosure over four feet in height unless they are supported by concrete posts and runners, to be removed for access by fire-fighters and you have obtained our approval (which will not be unreasonably withheld). You must position fences and any other means of enclosure so as to comply the park’s licence conditions and fire safety requirements.
