Mobile home sites - fit and proper person applications and register

The Mobile Homes (Requirements for Manager of Site to be Fit and Proper) (England) Regulations 2020 came into force on 1 July 2021.

The purpose of the fit and proper person test is to improve the standards of mobile home site management.

Residential site owners must apply to the Council between 1 July and 1 October 2021, for the relevant person (themselves and/or their appointed manager(s)) to be included in the Council’s public register of fit and proper persons to manage a site.

The application fee is £306 regardless of the number of residential park homes on the site and is non-refundable

Once an application is approved, the registration will normally last for 5 years and attract an annual fee of £98 in the second, third and fourth year.

What does this mean for site owners?

From 1 October 2021, unless the site is exempt, the site owner must:

•   Be a fit and proper person to lawfully operate a park home site, or

•   Have a fit and proper site manager in place

Exempt sites

A site is exempt if it's “a non-commercial family occupied site”. This is:

  • Only occupied by members of the same family, and

  • Not being run on a commercial basis 

The regulations provide further detail about this exemption. See the GOV.UK - legislation website for more details.
