Holiday Caravan Sites (Wales) Bill- will it gain the support of the Assembly?
Recently the Communities, Equality and Local Government Committee (“the Committee”) examined and scrutinised the Holiday Caravan Sites (Wales) Bill (“the Bill”) and published their recommendations in a report.
The Committee’s main recommendation is that the Welsh Assembly should not support the Bill. Instead they recommended that the Assembly review the 1989 Model Standards for holiday caravan sites to address the issues of flood risk management on parks. They also recommend that the Assembly introduce a mandatory holiday caravan agreement to be used by all park owners of holiday parks in Wales.
However the decision as to whether the legislative process for the Bill should continue is with the Welsh Assembly. The next stage in the process is the Welsh Assembly’s debate. It is important that all park owners of Welsh holiday parks contact their Welsh Assembly members with their views on the proposed Bill so that this can be considered during their debate.
We will provide updates on the progress of the Holiday Caravan Sites (Wales) Bill in future blogs and in the newsletters sent to subscribers to our Parklaw service.
