District Wide
Housing Consultations


This consultation is closed.


We received three responses to the consultation. The Lee Valley Regional Park Authority (LVRPA) raised a number of comments and concerns and these are highlighted in Appendix 2 of the Cabinet Report titled Site Licence Conditions on Holiday Caravan and Camping Sites (C-002-2015/16).  

We amended the conditions to reflect the agreed changes from the consultation. The amended draft conditions were re-circulated to all the site operators and other interested parties for further consultation and no adverse comments were received. The standard Licence Conditions for Holiday Caravan and Camping Sites in Epping Forest was agreed by Cabinet and adopted by the council on 11 June 2015.



The Council is responsible for the licensing of Holiday camping and touring sites in its district. A review of the4 existing site licence conditions has not occurred for many years and it is now considered appropriate to introduce new revised standard conditions for all our sites that are relevant, fair and in line with modern times.


Why we consulted


The Caravan sites and Control of Development Act 1960 requires that a council must consult with all site owners before making any variations to an existing site licence. It must also consult with the local fire service. This council wants to consult with all interested parties including other external agencies (Health and Safety Executive Environment Agency) and internal services (eg, Planning and Land Drainage) before producing the final licence conditions.We wanted to know if you agreed with the proposed standards site licence conditions for holiday caravan and touring sites in the district.

The proposed site licence conditions were presented to the Council's Cabinet on 11 June 2015 to adopt the site licence conditions as the standard conditions for holiday caravan and camping sites in the district.
