Caravan site licences

You need to apply for a caravan site licence (and pay the appropriate mobile home site licensing fee) for all caravan and mobile home sites, unless specifically exempted.

We'll only issue you with a licence:

  • if the correct planning consents are in place
  • following consultation with North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue
  • we're satisfied that you're a 'fit and proper person' to manage the site
