Residential site licences and rules
How to apply and fees
We often attach conditions to licences that are designed to protect the health, safety and welfare of residents and cover things like drainage and distances between mobile homes. If site licence conditions aren’t met, we can take enforcement action which includes the serving of compliance or fixed penalty notices.
When applying for a licence, you will need to provide a 1:500 scale plan of the site showing the parking spaces showing how you will satisfy the relevant site licence conditions*, including:
- site boundaries
- positions of caravans standings
- roads and footpaths (where appropriate)
- toilet blocks and washing facilities
- stores and other buildings
- foul and surface water drainage
- water supply
- recreation spaces
- fire points
- parking spaces
Please ensure the plan distinguishes between facilities already provided and facilities proposed. We can supply a map of the site for this purpose. To request a map email our private sector housing team.
Please send your completed application and cheque (see fees below), made payable to Lichfield District Council, to:Private sector housing team, Lichfield District Council, Frog Lane, Lichfield, WS13 6YY
If paying by cheque please quote code 0530 on the back. If paying by card over the phone please call 01543 308725 and quote the code HC.
