Views Wanted on Easingwold's Caravan Sites
3:53pm 22nd July 2014
Hambleton residents are being asked for their comments on caravan site licences and caravan site enforcement policy.
The District Council’s Environmental Health Service is proposing to amend the existing caravan site licence conditions covering permanent residential sites, touring and holiday sites and camping sites and to introduce a system of risk based inspection.
“The existing licence conditions are based on 1989 model standards issued by the government,” said Paul Staines, Head of Service - Environment
“These conditions are now outdated and do not reflect changes to legislation over the past 25 years or offer enough guidance to licence holders on what is required to maintain the licence. There have also been changes in our understanding of certain issues such as climate change in relation to recycling, flooding, food hygiene and health & safety.
“There are many excellent sites within the District that exceed expectations and there are some which fall below. Our aim is to support all licence holders to create a safe environment that attracts people into the area and encourages them to come back.”
Comments can be submitted through the ‘Have your say’ consultation page on the Council’s website - www.hambleton.gov.uk/consultations/current-consultation by August 4
