The manufactured home estate or caravan park must comply with the Local Government (Manufactured Home Estates, Caravan Parks, Camping Grounds and Moveable Dwellings) Regulation 2021 (LG Regulation).
Council is improving their attention to the compliance of caravan parks, manufactured home estates and camping grounds in accordance with the LG Regulation and development consent/s. A consistent approach to all developments of this type is proposed to improve compliance and the experience that persons have when they occupy these developments in the Clarence Valley Local Government Area.
An approval to operate is typically issued for a 3 year period. To receive a 3 year approval the application must include submission of a current site plan. The Supplied plan must provide sufficient detail to verify compliance with the LG Regulation.
While an Approval to Operate is issued under Division 3 of the relevant part of Regulation, the premise must still be compliant with all relevant sections of the Regulation. Please refer to the LG Regulation for specific details relating to the Approval to Operate, and plan requirements.
The compliance checklist(PDF, 282KB) must also be completed and attached as part of the application, to assess compliance of the Caravan Park or Manufactured Home Estate.
If a site plan showing sufficient detail is not submitted with the application to renew the Approval to Operate then Council will require a site survey to be conducted by a registered surveyor.
Once a current plan providing sufficient detail has been provided, Council will conduct a site inspection.
If any non-compliances are identified, Council officers will be in contact regarding further requirements. This is a case by case basis and may include audits, programs of work (POW), details of specific compliance actions and anything else deemed necessary to achieve compliance.
