Default Holiday Park in trouble

I have just come across a post elsewhere about an article on line by The East Anglia Daily Times about a caravan park Stonham Barns being prosecuted for ‘vans being “lived in” on a holiday park when it should have been closed.
Sorry but I struggle to post links from my iPad.

Interesting.... I'm sure we all know parks where this happens

This is why we don't recommend taking the risk of making a holiday Park your permanent place of residence

The very fact they have a post room shows the site knew they were living there. We got a phone call to our home address when we had one letter go to our site. ( turned out to be a birthday card for the dog from the local vet )

as far as I can tell from the reports, the site knew perfectly well that people were living there, and people living there knew perfectly well it was a holiday site, not residential.
Must make it very hard for the well-run sites when they are competing with the bend-all-the-rules-to-suit-ourselves sites, so the more cases where sites turning a blind eye are fined the better for everybody.

Agreed fhb. How does the site owner not know about ( to quote ) nearly 200 people living there permanently? And if he was doing what was correct and the license from the council was on display did the “residents” not know they were in breach of it as well?
I do not wish harm on anybody but the more I find out about this, the more my sympathy disappears.

People hear what they want to hear.
If being told that "everybody does it" suits their plans better than "it is not worth the risk", then on their head be it.
Most people seem to carry out more research when buying a television than they do when buying a home.

Must admit I have always said Read the contract....sounds like also the council departments don't speak/read their own planning rules....as you can bet housing benefit,bus passes,council tax etc.etc.are issued.....sales people move on ,so get everything in writing...obviously the rules will state no living...

We spoke to a couple on a site by us ,who were registered with gp, had bus passes issued by council and they lived on site,they said salesman told them it was okay when they bought.....
