Can I buy my own residential park home and put it on to private land without planning permission?

No. You must obtain planning permission first.

How do I arrange to get my park home sited?

If it is being sited on a park, this will normally be arranged via the park operator who will ensure that all the manufacturer's instructions are adhered to and that Health & Safety requirements are met during the operation. If the park home is being sited on private land, you must use a specialist company, there are several in membership of the NCC, not least to ensure that your manufacturer's warranty is not compromised.

What if I have a problem with the way my home has been sited?

See our section on Conciliation and disputes.

What is the legal requirement for distance between park homes?

For health and safety reasons (and for privacy) a 6 metre separation distance is required between residential caravans.
