Licence - caravan sites

Allerdale are the enforcing authority for the licensing of Caravan sites.  This includes sites which accept touring caravans, which have static caravans and residential caravan sites -also referred to as park homes.
Each Caravan site should have on display a copy of their current licence and the conditions which apply to it. These conditions include the spacing between caravans, the provision of roadways and fire points.
These conditions will not apply to caravan sites which came into being and have remained unchanged since these model conditions were created.
The model licence conditions and licence application form for caravan sites are available to download below. An application form for a tent site licence is also available below.
