Park Rules

For Holiday Home Owners

These Park Rules are in place for the good management of our park and the benefit of all who use it. These rules form part of the Licence Agreement that is the contract between ‘us’ and yourself for your occupation of a pitch on the Park. They should be read alongside your Licence Agreement. The Park Rules do not affect anything to which you are entitled under the terms of your Licence Agreement.

  • The Expression ‘you’/‘your’ means the Caravan owner and/or occupier.
  • The Expression ‘we’/‘us’/‘our’/‘the park’ refers to the park owner and/or manager and/or staff.
  • The Expression ‘written permission’ means that you must obtain written permission from Head Office at Lucksall Caravan Park before carrying out any works.

You must make sure that anyone using the Park is aware of the Park Rules.

The rules set out below are the Park Rules referred to in your Licence Agreement. You are reminded that breach of these rules is a breach of your Licence Agreement and could result in termination of the Licence Agreement.

  • You must use the Park safely and should not cause danger to others.
  • You must obey all health and safety notices displayed on the park and act on the reasonable instructions of park staff in matters of health and safety.

CCTV is in operation for the safety and security of our staff and guests. If anyone uses their own CCTV it may only capture images of the area immediately around your Caravan not of any other part of the Park, such as any path or road, or any other Caravan or its pitch and the area immediately around it.

  • Where others may reasonably expect privacy, you must obtain their agreement before taking a photograph in which they are identifiable, e.g., when they are in accommodation or on a pitch.
