Improving the regulation of manufactured homes and estates, caravan parks and camping grounds

The NSW Government is working to improve the planning and approval process for manufactured homes and estates, caravan parks, and camping grounds.

The Department with the Office of Local Government prepared a Discussion Paper to seek feedback on proposed improvements. These proposed improvements aim to:
• simplify and streamline the planning and approval process
• balance short-term tourist accommodation needs and long-term residents’ needs
• improve the design, location, and amenities of future developments.

There will be no impact on residents living in existing manufactured homes and estates, caravan parks, and camping grounds. Tenancy and management issues are set out in the laws administered by Department of Fair Trading.

Thank you to everyone who commented on the proposed improvements during the public consultation (2 November 2015 to 14 December 2015).

All feedback will be analysed and the results will be used to update the planning rules for manufactured homes and estates, moveable dwellings, caravan parks, and camping grounds.
