Comments on another thread bought this to mind, but I thought rahter than clog up that thread I would post here.

A marina, not too far from where we live offers residential moorings, or does it? It is home to around 120 boats in two basins. In one of those basins the 40 or so boats are permanent homes to a community of people who live at the Marina. The terms of the marina state that all boats must leave for a minimum of 48 hours in any 13 week period and that noone may reside in the marina for more than 48 weeks in any one year.

The marina owners provide waste disposal, a community centre with a lounge, kitchen, showers etc, a dedicated car parking space for each mooring, a visitors car park AND a postal address for each "reident". BUT, apparently these moorings are not legally considered residential?

So what are the rules, who makes them? What determines what is and is not residential?

I've always understood residential to be where you can spend 52 weeks a year.

By introducing the 48 hours in a 13 week period rule, they are circumnavigating the residential bit. How strictly it's enforced is another matter.

I could be wrong with the above though.

My understanding is the same as yours Gary but do not know it for a fact.  

I had always understood it was very like mobile home / caravan/ holiday lodge parks where there are  hundreds available but  finding a  true residential site ( my home is my castle sort of thing ) is like looking for hens teeth.

Anything which makes you shift or move out for two weeks, two months or two nights in 28 is not truly residential in my opinion.

Usually the local (planning) authority will determine whether a site/property may be designated 'residential' or a 'holiday home' and if it is the latter then there is usually some restriction on the number of weeks a year, or the number of consecutive weeks, it can be occupied and, strictly, an owner/occupier is supposed to have another, permanent home/address.  

Most of the bungalows up in the Potter Heigham stretch of the Thurne, for example, are deemed to be 'holiday homes' (and to be fair, most of them are used that way).  However, there are ways around it.  I know of one chap up there who gives his son's address elsewhere as his 'home address', spends 50 weeks in the bungalow, and goes on his 'holidays' by taking his cruiser (usually moored outside the bungalow) down to the southern rivers for a couple of weeks in the summer.  Wink

I agree with the 3 above, if it's residential you can stay all year round
if it's classified as holiday accomadation it has to be empty for 1
believe 30 consequetive days per year, that is cetainly the case for
my sisters holiday home but the period may vary according to the
local council.

if it is to be it is up to me!

The test here for residential in cabins caravans and the like is that site owners are required by the council to maintain a register of home addresses of "residents" and that they cannot be on the electoral role from the site only from their "home" address wherever this is.
