    Mobile home planning permission?

    Hi all,
    My neighbour has recently placed a mobile home in his field where he keeps 3 old horses.
    It’s in a field on the opposite side of the road from his house and garden and we overlook the field too. Bit of an eyesore really!
    Can he just do that without planning permission?

    No I believe not. Contact the council about a breach of planning if it is a problem to you. If it did not bother you my advice would be to do nothing - the choice is yours.

      He can move it and stick it in his front garden though.

      Pretty sure PP not needed for that.

      He can keep it in field but not for accommodation - has to be used for something like feed storage etc

      My views are my own - you may not agree with them. I tend say things as I see them and I don't do "political correctness". Just because we may not agree you can still buy me a pint lol

        Don't forget that if the person who owns the mobile home submits a planning application, unless the rules have changed, the applicant can go the the Planning Office and ask to see the file, and any letter of objection (even if marked Private & Confidential) can be read, so if you do write, remember it can be seen by the applicant.

          It may well be the case if you go in person. A similar complaint by someone about an activity on my land was redacted when a copy was sent to me. However by the "turn of phrase" I know who reported me. Turned out the be the best thing that could have happened in the long run but that is another story!

            They can only keep a mh/caravan in use on the property for any 28 days out of 365.

              I believe as long as its not for 100% independent living it can stay indefinitely ie as long as persons in the caravan have to use the main house for cooking (or bathing).

                Op says the field is not in the curtilage of the owners property. It is a field the other side of the road from the property in which he the owner lives, a field in which horses are kept, so my answer is correct on the info given. Planning permission will need to be sought without a doubt.

                  Ah some confusion.

                  I had offered the notion in post #3 that the neighbour COULD move the caravan into his front garden and provided comment on that.

                  The front garden being more of an eyesore than it being left in the field.

                    But at least I wouldn't see it there!
                    At the moment I will see it all the time when the leaves fall on the roadside hedge and even more when the hedge is trimmed which it is annually.

                      That's not true, reporting a breach of planning is anonymous.

                        I was once told by a RTPI Planning Inspector that if someone makes a planning application when it is 3 days before the Planning Meeting the applicant can go to the planning office and ask to see the file. When I did this I was able to see "everything" from letters of objection which said "Please keep this letter confidential and another from a council officer who said that my application to build on agricultural lane was "the tip of the iceberg and more would follow" I won it on appeal.

                          Thanks Pillman, I guess I will engage with my surveyor to walk me through the conditions to gain perpetuity. Because the developement is close to a semi busy road conditions 7 & 8 are welcomed, to be sure that the building does not suffer from vibrations or excesive noise.

                          No, that was not what was being stated.


                          You have to comply with the pre-development conditions before digging a single trench will accomplish the practical start of the development.

                          Only then will that work be lawful as the start of operational development, which would...

                          Just over a year ago I was granted planning permission to build a 2 storey detached house in my side garden. Their is a restrictive covenant on what I can build in the side garden so I have had to make an application to the upper lands tribunal to have the restiction either modified or removed....

                          Hi pilman

                          So you are saying if I submit No.7 I could make the existing application valid in perpetuity?

                          I have emailed Planning Officer Regeneration and Planning Services and their reply:

                          The only way to extend a planning application is to re-apply, the application...

                          That appears to be the first pre-construction condition, which requires an extremely high level of compliance.
                          As does the second pre-construction condition.


                          Seeing those conditions make me glad I retired as a property developer before matters became so complicated.

                          A thought, when you say there is a Restrictive Covenant, I always wonder if its enforceable in that if the people who originally set the Restrictive Covenant no longer exist, who is there that would pay a firm of solicitors to take action for not observing the covenant.
