Camping Site Licences are issued under the Public Health Act 1936.

The need for a licence only arises if the site is used for more than 42 consecutive days or for more than sixty days in any consecutive 12 months.

It should be noted that the use of the land for a camping site for more than 28 days in the total during any calendar year will give rise to the need to obtain Planning Permission.

Licences are issued with conditions that are appropriate for the site concerned. They normally relate to the layout of the site (in respect of fire safety) and provision of facilities such as sanitary facilities.
