Campsite licences

Application for a Campsite Licence

Under Section 269 of the Public Health Act 1936 a licence is required if a person allows any land occupied by them to be used for camping (tents only) purposes on more than forty-two consecutive days or more than sixty days in any twelve consecutive months. There are exemptions from the licensing requirements and these are set out in section 269 (5) and (6) of the Public Health Act 1936.

If you wish to use your land as a tent site for longer that the days stipulated, then you must apply for a site licence.

It is likely that planning permission will also be required from Bassetlaw District Council’s planning department, please contact them for further information.

Please note there is no fee payable for this type of licence/permission. Request a licensing application form.
