28th August 2022






1.       Our official Rally Date is Monday 19th September 2022.

2.       A presentation Campaign letter regarding RPI to CPI and the 10% Commission Charge is being prepared for the Prime Minister.  Sir
          Peter's office is liaising with Downing Street and details will follow later.

3.        After our rally and delivery of our Campaign Letter to Downing Street - there will be a meeting to which you are all invited in
           Committee Room 10 at the Palace of Westminster.

This date has been decided upon because it is the only date available before the House rises on the 22nd September and the Conservative Party Conference which takes place on 2-5th October.   It is imperative that before their Party Conference, we make MP's understand the urgency of our demand that the Government honours its promise to change RPI to CPI on the pitch fee increase and delivers its decision on the 10% Commission Charge.  Enough is enough.  RPI to CPI affects every park home owner in the country and the 10% commission is the most hated charge. We want action and we want it NOW.  

Our President, Sir Peter Bottomley, who is also the Father of the House will chair the meeting.  Sir Christopher Chope MP - who has tried to bring forward a Private Members Bill  regarding RPI to CPI has also been invited  to attend and speak.  The meeting room has been booked for one hour and there will be ample time for the park home owners to have their say and ask questions on this cause that we have campaigned for.  

If we are to believe the news, RPI could rise substantially to even 18% or more - and the only winner is the Site Owners.  Government must hastily honour their promise and reduce this to CPI.  As our meeting and rally takes place before the Party Conference begins.  PLEASE CONTACT YOUR CONSTITUENCY MP AND ASK THEM TO ATTEND THE MEETING IN COMMITTEE ROOM 10 AND BRING PRESSURE TO BARE AT THE PARTY CONFERENCE.

The timetable for our Rally day will be:

12.noon                        All Park Home Owners to meet at the enclosed black railings opposite the gates of Downing Street with their                                                    Banners. 

A Press Release will be put out.  LKP, the Leasehold Knowledge Partnership will help us with coverage.  Photographers and TV news teams will be informed and I hope you will have the opportunity  to give your views.

12.30                            Is the time that we hope to make the Presentation to Downing Street.  (I will confirm later but this will not
                                     interfere with our rally.

Only a small party is allowed to enter Downing Street.  Therefore, Sir Peter and a small party will deliver a letter from the Park Home Owners JUSTICE Campaign on the subject of RPI to CPI and the 10% Commission Charge for the personal attention of the Prime Minister.

12.45                            Our rally will walk - with banners - to the Palace of Westminster.

Please keep to the pavement on this short Rally walk to Westminster.  Marshals will be in attendance.  Before going through security at the Palace of Westminster, we will have to dispose of our banners as they are not allowed inside of the Palace.  The Marshals will ask the Police at the Palace where they can be put.  Please place them where the Marshals direct - and remember to collect them when you leave the Palace. 

1.15 to 1.45 pm.   Our rally will make its way through security at the Palace.  

Please remember that any sharp objects  that you may be carrying will be taken from you before you are allowed to enter the Palace.

Refreshments and Toilets.

Once inside Westminster Hall, there is a cafe that is located to your right  (which you may wish to use after the meeting) and toilet facilities.

Meeting in Committee Room 10

At 2.15  it will be time to move to Committee Room 10.  I will be there to direct you but would be grateful if you could please keep together.  There will be stairs to climb, so please give yourself plenty of time.  There is a lift for anyone who needs assistance.  If this applies to you, please ask one of the security persons in the Palace to help you.

The meeting will commence at: approx: 2.30pm

The meeting will end at:  approx: 3.30pm

Please allow 30 minutes to exit the Palace for your journey home.  It is very busy around Westminster but there are many taxis that you can hail to take you to the various transport stations.  Warning. Please do not use the bicycle transport that is available - it will cost you a fortune.

Parking of Mini Buses
If you are travelling in a mini bus, I am told that the best place to park is on the Embankment.  Usually your driver will know about this.

Dress Code.
Our JUSTICE Campaign has always been respectful of people and places.  As we are very privileged to have a Committee Room allocated to us in the Palace, please can we adopt a smart casual appearance and if possible, no jeans please.


 PLEASE RESPOND EARLY TO ENSURE YOUR PLACE as there is a limit to the amount that can be seated in Westminster.

1.      Would you please let me know by return, the names of people that definitely want to attend. I will reply to you all after the bank

2.      Please give me the name of your Park and the county that it is in.

3.     Would you please make your own banners to reflect  our RPI to CPI situation and our four year wait to get
         justice - and of course the 10% commission charge.

4.      Would you please contact your own constituency MP and ask them to attend the meeting in Committee
         Room  10  and air your views to the Government at the Party Conference.

5.      Please inform your local press and regional TV station of our rally and its cause.  I will be sending out a
         Press Release and inviting TV and Radio - but we need all the help that we can get. 

Because RPI to CPI affects every park home owner in the land,  I have had a meeting with SCOPHRA (Scottish Confederation of Park Home Residents Associations) who I am pleased to report are supporting us and asking their Scottish MPs/MSPs to attend the meeting and make the Scottish resident's feelings known to the Government.

I will  need two Marshals to help on the day.  If you would be prepared to help with this very important job and have a yellow hi viz jacket.  Would you please contact Sonia at

I will write to you all again with any further updates, but would be grateful if you could please make your banners, galvanise support from your parks and bring as many as you can to the rally.

This is the only chance we have to do something that will positively affect every park home owner in the land.  I appreciate that not all people can travel to London - but you can still help.  If you are unable to attend the Rally, please write to your MP.  Inform them of the Rally and that it has taken four years and Government have still not honoured their promise to change RPI to CPI.  Remind them that the only people who are winning in this situation is the Site Owner and demand that change is done NOW.  Most importantly, ask them to represent you at the meeting in Committee Room 10 on the 19th September and make your feelings known to Government at the Party Conference.

Our President, Sir Peter Bottomley MP has written a strong letter to the Secretary of State.  Our campaign needs you to inundate the office of the Prime Minister with your demands for this change.

A sample letter that you may wish to send is laid out below.

Best Wishes and thank you

PRIME MINISTER'S ADDRESS.   10 Downing Street, London, SW1A 2AA

Dear Prime Minister

I am a member of the Park Home Owners JUSTICE Campaign and one of the Park Home Owners in this country that your Government has forgotten.  Four years ago, your Government promised to change the RPI to CPI increase on my pitch fee.  You have let me - and thousands like me - down.  You could easily do this in the next Finance Bill - but still you give us the same speal "when parliamentary time allows."  Enough is now enough. 

 Under the banner of the Park Home Owners JUSTICE Campaign, we will be rallying at Westminster on the 19th September and delivering our letter to Downing Street for your personal attention.  In these austere times, when RPI is rising every day, you are condemning park home owners to a cold miserable fate that could end in the death of some who can not afford to live.  

The only person to gain from your lack of thought, compassion and justice to park home owners is the site owner.  This is a windfall for him that will increase every year.  In a short while you will be wanting our votes - these will be in short supply if you do not honour your promise now.  

You increase our pensions by CPI and yet you expect us to  increase  our pitch fees by RPI.  The Welsh already enjoy a CPI increase to their pitch fee.  Why can you not make it fair  and do the same for England and Scotland.  The Father of the House, Sir Peter Bottomley has indicated that this could be done in the next Finance Bill.  If you won't listen to the voice of the people - please will you listen to the voice of The Father of the House.

 Dear Justice Campaign Member


Please see below the link to the minutes of the last APPG meeting.  You will see that our President, Sir Peter Bottomley MP, brought up quite forcefully the RPI to CPI subject at the last APPG meeting.  I am writing to Sir Peter regarding a way forward because enough is enough.  Things are now way beyond a joke.  We have waited four years for Government to honour their promise and residents need action now.  The only ones to profit - as usual - are the site owners who are now gaining another RPI windfall.  This windfall will stay on the pitch fee and increase every year - which is downright scandalous.

If no concrete answer is received when Parliament returns. I think we must show our strength and rally again.  Get the media involved and make arrangements to take this to the new PM at Downing Street and have a meeting in the Palace of Westminster.

Of course, arrangements will have to be made and I will get back to you all when I have spoken to Sir Peter.  Parliament returns and the way forward is clear.  It will take some organisation - but we have done it before and can do it again.

Tentatively, please email me at if you are prepared to come to London to rally.

Best wishes to you all and watch this space if we do not get action.
