Lobbying Housing Minister on Park Homes legislation
Conor Burns MP and Redhill & Northbourne Conservative by-election council candidate David d’Orton-Gibson know that some Park Home residents have concerns about the special legal position relating to their properties. Yes, they own their home but still must pay the site owner a fee for the right to base their property on a particular pitch.
With sites at Stour Park, Kingfisher Park Homes, Doveshill Park, Wheatplot Park Homes and Redhill Park Homes, this is clearly a significant issue for hundreds of Park Home residents in both Redhill and Northbourne. So, Conor and David d’Orton-Gibson met face-to-face with the Minister responsible for Park Homes legislation.
At a meeting with Grant Shapps MP in the House of Commons on Wednesday 15th May, Conor and David were able to raise all sorts of issues, speaking up for local residents and do his bit so that their voice is heard.
As David reports: “This meeting with the Minister was a great opportunity to talk with the person who can actually make a real difference to the lives of Park Home residents.”
