I’m interested in starting a small caravan park in my local area. Just wondering if planning permission is needed and if so how do I go about it. Would be putting in electricity and water, would have to look at planning for septic tank too.

All help and advice greatly appreciated.

Need more information.
Northern Ireland or Southern Ireland?
How many pitches?
Rural or in a town?

Was just going to ask same questions. Maybe if you're in the North a MHCC CL could be a possibility.

Forget the (caravan) think motorhome fot the size your thinking.
Motorhome parking requirement.
Hard stand with grass to the side.
one tap and wast water dump.

Do you live close by, could you provand a hard stand at your own property and run an emptying point into your own system.
It would save you the initial expence.

Go to Google maps and have a look at Norman view Feathard On Sea
Co Wexford ( satellite view ) he started out with 7 hard stands no has over 40 spaces hard and grass.

Would I need planning permission for motor home parking? I don’t live close enough to use my own septic tank unfortunately

Ask your county council.

You would probably need planning permission for change of use to the existing land and also for a campsite. Motorhome overnight parking will probably require planning permission.

Septic tank would require pp but with a tank they are expensive to empty and require a licensed contractor. If you have a bio system with a peculation run off then normal toilet cassettes with chemicals in it cannot be emptied.

Don’t let this put you off.
