Preface : In these rules:
Agreement to which the Mobile Homes Act 1983 applies or under a tenancy or any other agreement
These rules are in place to ensure acceptable standards are maintained on the park, which will be of general benefit to occupiers, and to promote and maintain community cohesion. They form part of the Agreement by which homeowners occupy the pitch in accordance with the Mobile Homes Act 1983, as amended. None of these rules is to have retrospective effect. Accordingly:
These rules also apply (for so long as they live on the park) to the park owner and any employees.
Condition of the Pitch
1.For reasons of ventilation and safety you must keep the underneath of your home clear and not use it as a storage space.
2. You must not erect fences or any other means of enclosure unless you have obtained our approval in writing (which will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed). You must position fences and any other means of enclosure so as to comply with the park’s site licence conditions and fire safety requirements.
3. You must not have external open fires, including incinerators.
4. You must not keep inflammable substances on the park except in quantities reasonable for domestic use.
5. You must not keep or use explosive substances, guns or firearms on the Park.
6. You must not have more than one storage shed on the pitch. All sheds must be approved by us in writing (approval will not be withheld or delayed unreasonably) You must ensure that any shed or other structure erected in the separation space between park homes is of non-combustible construction and positioned so as to comply with the park’s site licence conditions and fire safety
requirements. The separation space is the space between your park home and any neighbouring home.
7. No trees shall be planted, concrete laid, or permanent structure built (including Decking) without prior approval by us in writing (approval will not be withheld or delayed unreasonably).
8. You must not have any storage receptacle on the pitch other than the shed mentioned in rule 6 and any receptacle for the storage of domestic waste pending collection by the local authority.
9. Newspapers, cloth, rags, or refuse that may block pipes, must not be put into the lavatory pans or any part of the drainage system. If reported sewer pipe blockages are found to be between the home and the main channel the park owner retains the right to pass on the clearing costs to the homeowner.We ask all homeowners to be mindful with the use of the sewerage waste
system and to use biodegradable “eco friendly” chemicals where possible to help our self contained water treatment plant clean our waste effectively before it goes back into the earth.
10. You are responsible for the disposal of all household, recyclable and garden waste in approved containers through the local authority service. You must not overfill containers and must place them in the approved position for the local authority collections.
11. You must not deposit any waste or rubbish other than in local authority approved containers on any part of the park (including any individual pitch).
12. No solid refuse (including garden waste / trimmings) may be disposed of on the park. If the waste is not suitable for local authority containers then the occupier needs to arrange to dispose of the waste legally in another way. The
occupier must not permit kitchen waste or food of any kind to be discharged onto the ground, this includes bird feed.
13. You must not use the park home, the pitch or the park (or any part of the park) for any business purpose, and you must not use the park home or the pitch for the storage of stock, plant, machinery or equipment used or last used for any business purpose. However you are at liberty to work individually from home by carrying out any office work of a type which does not create a nuisance to other occupiers and does not involve other staff, other workers, customers or members of the public calling at the park home or the park.
Age of Occupants
14. Residents must be over 50 and have no permanent resident children, with the exception of the park owner and their family, the park warden etc.
15. You must not use musical instruments, all forms of recorded music players, radios and other similar appliances and motor vehicles so as to cause a nuisance to other occupiers, especially between the hours of 10.30pm and 8.00am.
16. No dogs or other domestic animals (except one cat) may be brought onto, or be kept at the Park save that a blind person may have a guide dog.
(i) The express terms of a homeowner’s agreement contain an undertaking on the part of the homeowner not to allow anything which is or becomes a nuisance, inconvenience or disturbance to other occupiers at the park and this undertaking extends to the behaviour of pets and animals.
(ii) These rules do not have retrospective effect. If the keeping of the pet complied with the previous rules, an occupier will not be treated as being in breach when these rules take effect. However, when the pet dies or leaves it can only be replaced if this would comply with these rules.
17. You must protect all external water pipes from potential frost damage. Water leaks are to be attended to immediately and are the responsibility of the home owner from the Water Stop Cock demarcation point. Stop Cock points must be kept clearly visible and accessible.
Vehicles and parking
18. You must drive all vehicles on the park carefully and within the displayed speed limit.
19. Pitches have a garage for one car and some have parking space for a second outside, however vehicles must be parked on hard standing so as not to cause any restriction to the road width or obstruction. Vehicles may also be parked in the car park provided.
Essential mechanical repairs on the Occupier’s own vehicle may be carried out either in the car park or in the garage on the pitch but not so as to cause inconvenience or annoyance to other residents.

24. Disused or unroadworthy vehicles must not be kept anywhere on the park. We reserve the right to remove any vehicle which is apparently abandoned at the owners cost.

The owners have nominated contractors to carry out tests and inspections for the said connection for which a nominal charge is made. The owner will be responsible for the electrical meter capable of up to 60 amps single phase loading installed at the intake and the occupier for the
maintenance and repair thereof. This is also the demarcation of the owner’s responsibility.
35. Payment of electricity supplied will be calculated from the meter reading plus the electricity company’s standard electricity charge. Settlement of the bill is required within 14 days.
36. The Owner shall have the right to (a) interrupt the electrical supply to the occupier’s home for maintenance or repair of electrical supply equipment, and (b) to limit the amperage provided at the occupier’s terminal if required by the Electricity Board or by other external factors. In such cases, as much notice as possible will be given to the occupier.
