The Caravan Club places great importance on the correct layout of rallies to ensure that safety standards are maintained and that we meet the requirements of our Exemption Certificate.
The minimum spacing between facing walls of adjacent motorhomes and caravans (the unit) of
6 metres is required.
There should also be 3 metres clear around the entire outfit, where an outfit is taken to mean and include the unit, an awning, pup tent and a car.
Roadway width within site should be 6 metres minimum.
For health and safety purposes, emergency vehicles should also be able to secure access at all times to within 90 metres of any unit on site.
Where spacing is more difficult to achieve, consideration could be given, for example, to park towing vehicles in a different location or not allowing awnings.
This diagram has been produced by Natural England, which shows the 6 and 3 metre spacing under a number of different scenarios.
