Reference and Link

Circular 23/83 - This document is not currently available online.

Sep 83

DoE 23/83 and WO 32/83 (19 Sept 1983)

This circular sets out Revised Model Standards for licensed caravan sites, clarifying the distinction between sites for touring caravans and those for static, or predominantly static, caravans.

Clear identification of sites for the purpose of informing emergency services, and the use of site licence control as an alternative to enforcement procedures when caravans are on an unauthorised site, are also covered.

Paragraphs 8-14 on travelling showpeople's winter quarters were cancelled by Circular 22/91.
