Park rules - Beverley Court
In these rules:
- "occupier" means anyone who occupies a park home under an agreement to which the mobile homes act 1983 applies.
- "you" and "your" refers to the homeowner or other occupier of a park home. "We" and "our" refers to the park owner.
These rules are in place to ensure acceptable standards are maintained on the park, which will be of general benefit to occupiers, and to promote community cohesion. They form part of the agreement by which homeowners occupy the pitch in accordance with the mobile homes act 1983 as amended.
They are to apply only from the date on which they take effect which is (date to be confirmed.) No occupier who is in occupation on that date will be treated as being in breach due to circumstances which were in existence on that date, and which would not have been a breach of the rules in existence before that date.
Rules apply in the same way to everyone on the park with the only exception being the park owner and the owner's family. Occupiers must be 55 years or older.

The site rules are proposed because they are necessary to ensure that acceptable standards are maintained on the site, which will be of general benefit to occupiers, and because they will promote and maintain community cohesion on the site. They are proposed now because the Mobile Homes (Site rules) (England) Regulations 2014 provide that the current site rules will cease to have effect on 3 February 2015.
