Caravan sites planning permission

Planning permission and site licences are needed for all caravan sites.

The occupier of the proposed caravan site should contact our planning department to find out whether the site would be acceptable.

A planning application will have to be submitted.

Along with planning permission, a caravan site licence will be issued which will consider the following: 

  • permitted numbers
  • the spacing between caravans
  • type of caravans
  • water supply and drainage
  • lavatory and drainage facilities
  • fire precautions
  • electrical installations, and so on
