Government launches consultation on a fit and proper person test for park home sites

23rd July 2019

The Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government, announced today that the Government has launched a consultation on its proposals to introduce a Fit and Proper Person Test for mobile site owners and managers in England.

The consultation follows a review of park homes legislation, in which the Government gave a commitment to introduce a fit and proper person test for site licence holders and managers of park home sites in England, subject to a technical consultation. The purpose of the test is to improve the standards of park home site management.

The consultation is intended to ensure that the regulations will support effective operation of the fit and proper person test in practice.

The test will ensure that those responsible for operating the site licence and managing the site are of sufficient integrity and good character to be involved in the management of a regulated site for mobile homes. The test will verify that the management of the site does not pose a risk to the welfare or safety of persons occupying mobile homes on the site.

This consultation closes at 11:45pm on 17 September 2019

LEASE is governed by a board, appointed as individuals by the Secretary of State for the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government.


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.
