Caravan site operators in East Lindsey should be charged for inspections and the issue of licences, according to district councillor George Horton.

Last Wednesday, Coun Horton told a full meeting of the district council: “This would raise money for the authority, probably in the region of a million a year.”

In response, Portfolio Holder for Finance Coun Nick Guyatt said: “The council does already charge for its caravan licensing work, but it is restricted by legislation on the level of charge that can be levied.

“Such charges must be on a cost-recovery basis only and cannot be used to generate additional income for the council.”
