Mobile homes - fit and proper person
On 23 September 2020, rules came into force that mean all mobile home site owners have to complete a fit and proper person test.
The owner of a site in Cheltenham borough must apply to us for the relevant person (either themselves or the site manager), to be included on a register of fit and proper persons. A site owner may only apply if they hold or have applied for a site licence for that site. The same requirements apply where the owner or the site manager is not an individual, such as a park owned or managed by a company. The person applying to appear on the register will need a basic DBS certificate (dated no more than 6 months before the date of the application) and this must be included with the application. The DBS certificate must be from an approved supplier. Information about how to arrange a DBS check can be found on GOV.UK.
From 1 July 2021 and by 1 October 2021 all site owners must submit an application for a relevant person to be assessed as fit and proper persons. A person operating a site who doesn't comply with the fit and proper person test is guilty of a criminal offence and, on summary conviction, would be liable to a fine up to level 5 (unlimited). There is currently no fee required to submit an application for the 2021/22 period.
