PARK RULES FOR RED DRAGON CARAVAN PARK
In these rules:
- "Occupier'' means anyone who occupies a park home, whether under an Agreement to which the Mobile Homes (Wales) Act 2013 applies or under a tenancy or any other agreement.
- "you" and "your" refers to the homeowner and any 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 and maintain community cohesion.
