Preface
In these rules:

“occupier” means anyone who occupies a park home, whether under an Agreement to which the Mobile Homes Act 1983 applies or under a tenancy or any other agreement
“you” and “your” refers to the homeowner or other occupier of a park home
“we” and “our” refers to the park owner.

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:

they are to apply only from the date on which they take effect, which is 1st January 2015;

and

no occupier who is in occupation on that date will be treated as being in breach due to circumstances which were in existence on that date and which would not have been a breach of the rules in existence before that date.

These rules also apply (for so long as they live in a park home 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 other means of enclosure unless they are of open lattice type, no more than 4 feet in height and 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 fires, including incinerators, with the exception of a domestic barbeque.
4. You must not keep inflammable substances on the park except in quantities reasonable for domestic use.
5.    You must not keep explosive substances on the park.
6. No substantial garden ornaments including but not limited to ornamental garden gnomes shall be placed in the garden of the park home

Note. 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 use of wood burning stoves and the smoke and fumes emanating from them. A similar requirement not to cause a nuisance applies to tenants and again this includes the operation of wood burning stoves

Storage
7. a) Except as provided in this rule 7(e) you must not have more than one storage shed on the pitch.
b) Where you source the shed yourself, the design, standard and size of the shed must be approved by us in writing (approval will not be withheld or delayed unreasonably). Dimensions of the shed should not exceed 8 feet in length and 6 feet in width
c) You must position the shed so as to comply with the park’s site licence and fire safety requirements.
d) You must not have any storage receptacle on the pitch other than the shed mentioned in this rule 7 and any receptacle for the storage of domestic waste pending collection by the local authority.
e) In exceptional circumstances where sufficient space is available on the pitch and having first obtained our approval in writing (which will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) an additional storage unit may be permitted. Factors to be considered in determining approval will include the impact of any additional unit on the amenity of adjoining occupiers including the size and positioning of the unit together with compliance with the park’s site licence and fire safety requirements
8. 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.


Refuse
9. 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.
10. 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).

Business Activities
11. 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
12. No person under the age of 45 years may reside in a park home

Noise Nuisance
13. 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.

14. You must not keep any pets or animals except the following:
- Not more than 1 dog (other than any of the breeds subject to the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 which are not permitted at all). You must keep any dog under proper control and you must not permit it to frighten other users of the park. You must keep any dog on a leash not exceeding 1m in length and must not allow it to despoil the park.
- Not more than 1domestic cat. You must keep any cat under proper control and must not permit it to frighten other users of the park, or to despoil the park.


Note
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. A similar requirement not to cause a nuisance applies to tenants and again this includes the behaviour of pets and animals.

Note

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.

15. Nothing in rule 14 of these Park Rules prevents you from keeping an assistance dog if this is required to support your disability and Assistance Dogs UK or any successor body has issued you with an Identification Book or other appropriate evidence.
