What happens if the site licence holder or manager fails the fit and proper person test?

If the site licence holder fails the test they will be given the opportunity to identify and appoint a suitable alternative manager. If the site licence holder is not able to do this the local authority will consider whether it is possible to appoint a person to manage the site, with the site licence holder’s consent.

Where an application is rejected, the name and address of the site will be included on the register but not the person’s name or business contact details. Like other registers, local authorities will be required to make the register available to the public and online.

If the site owner is not happy with the outcome of the test they can appeal to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) against a decision to:

  • to include the relevant person on the register for a period less than 5 years
  • any condition attached to inclusion on the register
  • any rejection of an application for inclusion on the register

WARNING ADVICE TO RESIDENTS

You DO NOT NEED to sign a new pitch agreement if your site owner changes. Your existing terms and conditions will stay the same if the site is sold.

If you are asked to sign a new agreement get advice from LEASE or a solicitor before doing so.
