MOBILE HOMES ACT - CONSULTATION REVIEW
News from the NCC - The UK trade body for the tourer, motorhome,
caravan holiday home and park home industries
The All Party Parliamentary Group on Park Homes (APPG) chaired by Christopher Chope, MP met at the House of Commons on Monday 13 March. Housing Minister, Gavin Barwell, MP confirmed Goverment's commitment to review the Mobile Homes Act 2013 for England. The consultation is expected before the end of May 2017 and will seek evidence on the effectiveness of the legislation to date and publish the response of the Ministerial Working Group (NCC was represented). Park Home Resident Groups meanwhile are calling for a further review of Commission rates on the sale of park homes and for the CPI index to replace RPI as the measure to increase pitch fees.
