    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.

                          Hello all

                          We are in the process of purchasing a freehold, and have been informed of restrictive covenants from a previous conveyancing in the 1950s as follows

                          "The plans and elevations of any private dwelling house and outbuildings intended to be erected on the plot shall...

                          a) In your experience how common an issue is this? have we just been unlucky?

                          Snags with restrictive covenants are not exactly common, but they are not rare either.

                          b) If we do proceed and obtain an indemnity policy could it significantly affect salability in future?

                          Lawcruncher,

                          Thanks very much for the comprehensive response.

                          Upon clarification it seems the contentious language that could cause us to breach is "and no building shall be commenced upon the plot until such surveyor shall have given a certificate in writing of such approval"...

                          Regarding an appeal made against EN on ground (e).

                          Should the appeal succeed does the 'immunity clock' start afresh, or does the original date of EN still stand?

                          thank you !

                          As to 1, my initial impression was that the intention was that the covenant should only extend to when the house was first built. However, we have to go by the wording. The first question is whether an extension is (a) a dwelling house and outbuilding, or (b) a dwelling house, or (c) an outbuilding....

                          They suggested indemnity insurance

                          But I wanted to understand

                          1. How restrictive the wording is? (to me it sounds like it only applies to a brand new dwelling and not an extension, but I may be mistaken)

                          2. How effective an indemnity policy actually is, especially...

                          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....
