Holiday parks – do you require a TV Licence?

All park owners who offer accommodation with installed televisions or other devices which enable a person to watch and record television programmes as they are being shown must have a TV Licence.

This will include the letting of holiday caravans, chalets and lodges and is applicable to the letting of accommodation to both staff and guests.

The TV Licence required is known as a ‘hotel and mobile units TV licence’. The cost of such a licence will depend on the number of accommodation units the park have. Any failure on a park owner to obtain a TV Licence where it is required is an offence.

If you have any queries regarding the requirement to obtain a TV licence or if you are interested in subscribing to our Parklaw service contact the parks team by telephone on 01392 207020 or email parks@tozers.co.uk
