The council is carrying out a consultation on charging for the licensing of mobile homes sites in the district.  The Mobile Homes Act 2013 allows for local authorities to charge for a range of licensing functions on a cost recovery basis.

 

Fees can be charged for the following areas of work;

 

·         Licence applications;

·         Annual licence fees;

·         Licence amendments, when requested by the site owner;

·         Transfer of a licence; and

·         Depositing of site rules.

 

Before the council implements these fees and charges, it is first consulting on the fees and charges policy, setting out all of the relevant charges and how they have been calculated.  This policy document is designed to fulfil the requirements of the legislation and enables South Staffordshire Council to charge for undertaking the licensing of residential caravan sites.  A document has also been provided setting out the fee calculations used to come to the different charges based on time spent and hourly rates

 

The Consultation is open from 4th January 2016 until 26th February 2016.  If you have any comments either email us at env.protection@sstaffs.gov.uk or write to us at
