28th October 2022

The President of PHOJC, and Father of the House, Sir Peter Bottomley MP has tabled a question to the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.

"To ask the Secretary of State for levelling up and housing communities, if he will make an estimate of the total commissions received each year by site owners from home sales by park home residents since 2010, and will he make a statement."

In business of the House on 27th October 2022, Sir Peter said:
"I ask the Leader of the House whether we may have the Government's statement, as soon as possible, on changing the fees for park home residents from using the retail price index to using the consumer price index, which is long overdue.  We need to deal with the issue of the 10% commission whenever anyone changes their home.


Parliament today.
2nd Reading of the Park Homes Bill to change RPI to CPI.
Sir Christopher Chope MP's Bill will now be read on 18th November.  Sir Christopher was pleased to say that the Bill now has government support.  We await the coming reading and hope that Government expedites it quickly.  After all, their promise is four years late and the only winners of this windfall are the site owner's.
I will be bringing this up at Monday's APPG meeting.
