Caravans on streets

Parking caravans on the highway and other public land, for example may;

  • Block the street illegally
  • Be a safety hazard to pedestrians, particularly children
  • Prevent or limit access for other vehicles
  • Be dangerous, for example if they are unstable or have gas cylinders attached

What can I do if I own a caravan?

Be responsible:

  • Think of your neighbours before you get a caravan. If you do not have suitable parking provisions at home, then arrange to store the caravan at a storage compound – see Yellow Pages, local newspapers etc. for details
  • If you need to park the caravan in the street to load or unload, try to limit this to one day.
  • Make sure the caravan is stable and that any hazards are removed and that gas bottles are isolated whilst it is stored in the street.
  • Do not allow people to live in the caravan or run electricity cables across the street


  • The street is not a caravan park
  • Your caravan may not be covered by insurance when parked on the highway or other public land.
