Static Caravan 10 Year Rule Advice !!!


Postby Invisible-Man » Tue Feb 14, 2012 11:21 pm

Hi all,

I have lived at a run down property site for over 10 years in a static caravan which was brought onto site at that time, the main property on the site has never been lived in as in need of renovation.......

I know that the static caravan should be allowed on site with no planning as its within the curtilage of the main property, providing that it is not used independently as a dwelling........

My question is that, as I have lived in the static caravan (mobile home) for over 10 years independently of the main dwelling which has had no occupation in the 10+ years, am I within my rights to apply for a Lawful Development Certificate in order to keep this static caravan as a completely independent unit of occupation?

In addition, if this being the case, I assume would allow replacement in the future of the mobile home up to the max allowed dimensions of 60' x 20'?

Appreciate your feedback,

Many thanks

you can claim ownership of the land if no oppision to it has been registered.You need to register a claim at your local register office.If no one has opposed your claim after 3 months you can claim the land as your own.Different rules apply in different counties so do your groundwork before applying

Hi, thanks for the reply.......I think you misunderstood my question.......

I already own all land concerned, I just wanted to know how I stood on the position of applying for a LDC for the mobile home as an independent dwelling......

Thanks
