Park Homes in Purbeck
The council's Park Home Fees Policy was reviewed by Council in November 2016. It sets out the fees the council will charge following the introduction of the Mobile Homes Act 2013.
Mobile Home Sites
Sites are licensed by the council under the Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960 The site licence relates to the following areas:
density and spacing of park homes
road, gateways, paths and hard standings

Sites are regularly inspected by the council but we are happy to investigate enquiries by residents about their park and discuss the issues with the site owners.

Buying a mobile home?
If you are considering buying a mobile home, it is just as important (if not more important) as it is when buying a house that you do the right due diligence checks. We recommend you use a solicitor to help you with this. Guidance on what to check before deciding to buy a mobile home can be found at the LEASE Park Home Advisory Service website. There are also factsheets on buying and selling a home at the gov.uk park homes pages and from Age UK among others. The following leaflet provides advice on fire safety precautions.
