Yes I am well aware of what went on in Gainsborough and Strande Lane. I lived down strande Lane on the 60's so well aware of all weather problems that can occur.

Sorry, it was just that your post kind of implied that you thought I was making a fuss about nothing because the caravan park wasn't flooded.  I guess another example of how the written word can be misconstrued.

Actually, park/mobile homes fall under the classification of the Caravans Act for legal/planning purposes, so Paris is not actually wrong there. Park homes sounds posher though!

Sorry but that is how they are advertised. as Park Homes not as Caravans. They are large well equipped with everything needed for easy iiving so don't put it down as a caravan.

Well whatever people want to call them or advertise them as is neither hear nor there. Legally and planning wise they fall under the caravan/mobile home act, last updated 2013.

Mobile home owners pay council tax and ground rent. Always a major gripe of mine when I owned one!

Well the only reason I posted about it was because Paris was pulled up incorrectly. I love them personally, although some of the standing type charges are quite high! Would like one on a little plot of my own (I can dream!)

We are quite aware of the legal definition , but our homes are known as Park Homes and have been for many years. As for your comment " sounds posher though " what a very rude statement !

Not rude at all, just stating a fact. Anyway, it's obviously a bit of a raw nerve there, no offence meant, just putting it straight for Paris Smiley

I do beg your pardon, I did not mean to cause offence by calling it a caravan, it's just that it what it has always tended to be known as locally.  

Incidentally a family member owns a similar 'park home' on a site in the New Forest which is an absolute delight, they always colloquially call it the caravan too!

Anyway, as I say I meant no offence to anyone and did not intend to cast a slight on anyone's home.

P.S.  Thanks mumofone.
