Local Authority CPD Training

Local Authority CPD Training provides your Planning department the opportunity to increase their knowledge of the Caravan Act for Mobile Home and Garden Room development.

At NAPC, we understand the complexities these developments present for Local Authorities, ranging from whether an Annexe can be considered ancillary, to the legal tests for a Mobile Home conforming with the Caravan Act.
