He said that being able to buy and sell homes without the involvement of park owners was also of great importance.
Referring to pitch fee increases, he said that park owners now had to complete a form about the increases and the reasons for them, and that the residents had the right to challenge those increases and go to arbitration if that proved necessary.
Maintenance of the park was another topic he touched upon, saying that the local authority now had the ability to ‘go in and rectify’ dangerous situations.
The Minister felt that these were items of considerable benefit to residents and that, even if they did have to contribute to the cost of the park’s licence, he felt it was a small price to pay.
