Detail

The Mobile Homes Act 2013 introduced a new site licensing regime which gives local authorities more effective control of conditions on sites.

The new scheme which came into effect on 1 April 2014, gives local authorities powers to issue compliance notices and in an emergency, or where a site owner has been convicted for failing to take the steps required by the compliance notice, the authority will have powers to enter the site and do the works.

This guidance provides local authorities with best practice guidance on how to use the new licensing regime and powers to best effect.
