New legislation weeks away

New legislation weeks awayThe Mobile Homes Bill has completed its passage through the House of Lords and the next stage is the Royal Assent.

Lord Best, who steered the Bill through the Lords, estimated that the Bill could be on the statute books in just a week or two.

This legislation is the culmination of years of hard campaigning work by national residents’ associations, residents themselves, industry bodies and MPs, but it gained real momentum following the Justice Campaign launched by Sonia McColl three years ago which had the aim of preventing park owners from blocking sales on site.

Although, the Bill will be enacted after the Royal Assent, the sale blocking part will come into force two months afterwards. The site licensing powers will become law in April 2014. The fit and proper person may come into force in 2017 or may not be brought at all.

QUINTON Minoprio of the Haulfryn Group has sadly passed away. Quin was managing director until his retirement in 1992 but remained chairman for eight years. We send our condolences to his family and friends. A full obituary will appear next month.
