    On the news yesterday it was announced that the Government had issued a notice to local planning authorities, that planning permission was no longer needed for the erection of charging points for electric cars.

    These notices are also in force for TV antennas satellite dishes etc.
    This type of action is all that is needed by government, to enable local authorities to set up parking places for motorhomes where they can be occupied overnight.

    Presumed consent could also apply to the construction of service points.
    Private owners would still have to apply for a site licence under the Caravan Sites Act but could be included in the presumed planning consent.

    We have situations now where there are parking places where the local authorities have started and withdrawn facilities because they have been informed by their legal departments that although they can set up such facilities under the Caravan Sites Act. The legal guys consider that the authorities have to apply to them selves and go through the expense of meetings to grant themselves permission to set up a parking place that already exists.

    It shows that they can do it when they want to.
