I am sure this must have been posted, however if it hasn't then if you fancy living in Cornwall have a look at Item number: 120357342076 on ebay.

I bow to your superior knowledge on CS & CL, rules, Pat - BUT what if you own the land and employ yourself as Warden of the "Open-all-year" site.

We have passed this rig - on its site - on our way in and out of Cornwall for well over a year now - very lovely, bleak, lonely setting - well suited to a shepherd, methinks!

Nevertheless, we (Mo and I) are interested enough to go and investigate today.

Pat your are right of course, however I know 2 local CL's one with an Rv, the other a caravan, both tucked up against the hedge row, the guy lives full time in the caravan. I know because he does jobs for me from time to time.
On some occasions when I pass the RV there is a toad parked up, so my guess is they also live there.

The 28 day use rule also applies to air strips, however some guys work on, that hopefully no one is counting.

Each to their own, but I wouldn't wont to live looking over my shoulder.:Eeek:

You've been mind-reading again, Olley!

Spot on for an overnight stop on the way into and out of Cornwall - and a tea bar in the layby as well!

Think I might try to emulate Carvynick Country Club - after all, everybody has to start somewhere!

Seriously though, I am not sure if there is a telephone signal there - which is why Mo and I want to go and have a look.

I'm not too sure even this would count Dick. The 28 day rule is a local authority rule (rather than a Club rule) and as i understand it, any structure OR vehicle which is placed on land for more than 28 days is automatically classed as a permanent structure and as such falls within planning rules. I VERY much doubt that you'd get planning permission topermanently site an RV anywhere. You MIGHT get it for a static, but from the description you gave of this area, I VERY much doubt it.
I couldn't even get planning permission for a self build, self contained log cabin in a VERY secluded area in Cheshire! The local authorities view was "we dont care how enviromentally freindly the build is, or how secluded it is, if we give you permission for
80K's worth of quality log cabin, we'll have "huts" springing up every where and we dont want that on OUR patch!:Eeek:

edit = I do remember reading in one of the "Sundays" late last year that a guy moved his family into an old London double decker on someland in Hertforshire (I think). Can't remember if the article said he "Had" or was "applying for" planning permission though.

You can't go wrong with this opportunity, buy it, if you don't have any then rent some snot nosed kids, empty a few skips, throw a few shopping trolleys around, light a fire for wire stripping, sorted. The authorities will then leave you well alone, you will have rights, you might even qualify for one of their grants:RollEyes::ROFLMAO:

Hi I contacted my local authority about some friends living in their M/H over the summer in my garden, the reply and the guy wasn't to sure even after taking further advice was "he didn't know" :ROFLMAO:

He said off the record as long as it disappeared every now and then for a day or two, he didn't think they could do anything about it.

My real reason for asking was to rent the house and live part time in the garden when not off on our travels, in hopefully the not to distant future.

Hi all, the Georgie boy pursuit must be in the 35,000 / 40,000 bracket,even if you move to a lay-by every 28 days it cannot be bad :thumb: You would have to phone council for what they say but if it is recognised as a cl then you must be able to stay on as a permanent warden :thumb::ROFLMAO:
now 5 vans at 10 per night = 50 x say 200 = 10 k = paid for in 5 1/2 yrs ::bigsmile: 7 / 8 yrs on the safe side :ROFLMAO: mignt sell the house and risk upsetting the planners :thumb: only got to convince SWMBO now :thumb::ROFLMAO:

Couldn't agree more, Derek - we have passed it on dozens of occasions and never ever seen anybody other than the Georgie Boy on site. In fact we didn't know it was a site, we thought it belonged to the local farmer.

Hell of a place to run out for a pint of milk, isn't it?

And the local area, known as Temple is always the first to gather the fog and mist, rain and snow and is generally always the last to clear it as well!

Frankly, I think something is 'fishy' here.. the RV is worth 30 - 40k .. is he selling a pup ?

Has the council already given him notice to quit, is the CL actually listed and legal ?
