The Government has published the Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England)Regulations 2018 under section 13 of the Animal Welfare Act 2006. The effect of the new regulations is to replace some existing licensing regimes and to put in place a new licensing regime to control certain licensed animal activities.
If you're thinking about running a camping and/or caravan site, you might need a licence.
You won’t need one if:
Before applying for a licence you'll need to apply for planning permission. For more information about planning visit our Planning for Business pages.
Before making an application read the guidance on the GOV.uk website.
If a site changes hands/is sold to someone else, the new owner can have the current licence transferred over to them by using our online application form.
When coming up with site rules, the owners will need to consult with residents about their proposals, by putting up a proposal notice.
Residents can have their say by speaking to the owners or by completing a consultation response form.
