Public Health Act 1936
Camping Site Licences are issued under the Public Health Act 1936. No fee is payable. The need for a licence arises only if the site is used for more than forty two consecutive days or for more than sixty days in any consecutive twelve months. However, it should be noted that the use of land as a camping site for more than twenty eight days in any calendar year will require Planning Permission. Conditions are attached to licences, appropriate to the site concerned, and normally relate to the layout of the site, safety provisions and welfare facilities for the occupants.
Under normal circumstances, the Authority will complete the administration of any application and reach a decision within 20 working days of the complete application being received. If no decision is notified to the applicant in that timescale, the application is deemed as granted.
Applications for Camping Site Licences are dealt with on an individual basis - please contact us for an application form.
