Answered on Wednesday 27 January 2021 by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government.
Mr Kevan Jones (North Durham): To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, whether the Government's moratorium on evictions extends to people living on a holiday caravan site with an 11-month operating license as their primary residence, and who have no tenancy agreement, but a valid license agreement for their pitch.
Christopher Pincher (Tamworth) responded: The moratorium on evictions only applies to residential caravan sites. It does not apply to caravan sites with planning permission for holiday use.
During this period of national lockdown, accommodation providers including holiday caravan parks, must close. However, there are a number of exemptions that allow businesses to remain open, including where households are using this accommodation as their main residence.
Where sites have to close because planning conditions require them to do so, we encourage site owners to work with their respective local authorities to plan for any possible impacts the closure might have.
