Planning legislation takes primacy over the legislation that governs caravan site licenses this means that, the licence may only be issued after the relevant planning permission has been obtained for the site. It is recommended that before submitting an application for a caravan site licence that any potential applicant checks the planning permission permits the land to which it relates to ensure it can be used as a caravan site. Without the correct planning permission being in place, a caravan site licence cannot be granted.
It is worth noting that as a caravan site licence can only be issued in accordance with planning permission, this means if there are any relevant restrictions that form part of the permission then these will need to be mirrored on the site licence, if granted. For instance, if the planning permission only allows a site to be occupied between 1 March and 31 October, then the caravan site licence cannot be granted beyond those months.
