Camping site licence

You will need a licence from South Tyneside Council if you allow your land to be used as a camping site by the public for more than 42 consecutive days, or 60 days in a year.

Conditions may be attached to your licence.

There are exceptions for organisations that hold camping exemption certificates.

For more information, please contact Environmental Health on 0191 424 7927 or email environmental.health@southtyneside.gov.uk

How will you evaluate my application?

When an application is made it will be deemed to be made unconditionally unless we give notice that the application is refused or conditions are attached.

Will tacit consent apply if I haven't heard back from you?

No. It is in the public interest that the council must process your application before it can be granted. If you have not heard from the council within a reasonable period, please contact us. You can do this online if you applied through the UK Welcomes service or contact us on 0191 424 7927.

How do I appeal if my application isn't approved?

You should contact South Tyneside Council in the first instance.

You can also appeal to your local Magistrates' court.

Licence holder appeals
