Fit and Proper Person Licensing

On 3 September 2020, the House of Lords debated the Mobile Homes (Requirement for Manager of Site to be Fit and Proper Person) (England) Regulations 2020.

The Regulations look to introduce a fit and proper person test for owners and managers of residential parks, and residential areas of mixed parks, in England. Park operators will need to make an application to their local authority by 1 October 2021 for each park they own in England.
