To legally operate an existing caravan park, the registrations of the premises must be transferred from the name of the existing licensee to the name of the proposed purchaser.
Before you purchase a caravan park you should:
- Check with Council's Environmental Health Officer to determine if the business has current registration with Council;
- Request a transfer inspection of the property to ensure the premises complies with the requirements of the Acts. This request should be in writing from your solicitor;
- Check that the Park Emergency Management Plan is complete and up to date.
Once the business has been purchased, applicants must apply to the Shire to transfer the registration for the caravan park.
Alternatively, the Council's website has guidelines to help you set up a new caravan park.
For more information specific to the design and construction of caravan parks and movable dwellings please contact the Shire's Statutory Building Team.
