Is my holiday caravan just for leisure use?
Yes, most definitely. You can use your holiday caravan is for short breaks and longer holidays. It can not be used as your main residence as this would breach the park's site licence, and you would have none of the protection in law provided to occupiers of residential parks. Don't be surprised if the park asks you for proof (at the outset and at intervals in the future) that you have a permanent home address elsewhere. At Oakland Holiday Park we require; Photo I.D. Council Tax Bill & Utility Bill which will be required on an anual basis.
