Camping site licence

If you allow your land to be used as a camping site by the public for more than 42 days consecutively - or 60 days in a year - you require a licence from your local authority.

Conditions may be attached to a licence. There are exceptions for organisations that hold camping exemption certificates.

Regulation Summary

An overview of the regulation relating to this licence.

Application Evaluation Process

When an application is made it will be deemed to be made unconditionally unless the local authority give notice that the application is refused or conditions are attached.

Will Tacit Consent Apply?

No. It is in the public interest that the authority must process your application before it can be granted. If you have not heard from the local authority within a reasonable period, please contact us.

Failed Application Redress

Please contact us in the first instance by emailing customerservices@gateshead.gov.uk

If an applicant is refused a licence they may appeal to their local Magistrates' court.

License Holder Redress

Please contact us in the first instance by emailing customerservices@gateshead.gov.uk

A licence holder may appeal against a condition attached to a licence to their local Magistrates' court.

Consumer Complaint

We would always advise that in the event of a complaint the first contact is made with the trader by you - preferably in the form a letter (with proof of delivery). If that has not worked, if you are located in the UK, Citizens Advice will give you guidance. From outside the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre.

Other Redress

Noise, pollution, etc. Also in the case where one licence holder complains about another.
