MP Annette Brooke welcomes park homes bill
2:00pm Monday 22nd October 2012 in News
MP Annette Brooke has welcomed progress in park homes legislation aimed at cracking down on sale blocking.
The second reading of Peter Aldous MP’s Bill on Mobile Homes passed through to committee stage on Friday after winning support from all political parties in the House of Commons. During a speech in the chamber, the Mid Dorset and North Poole MP praised her constituent, Wareham woman Sonia McColl, for setting up the national Park Home Owners’ Justice Campaign.
She also cited an example of £15,000 being offered for a home that could have gone for £150,000 on the open market, adding: “I am delighted to see this bill progress.”
Crusading Mrs McColl collected thousands of signatures from park home residents, claiming that the problem of ‘unscrupulous’ park owners had reached ‘epidemic’ proportions in the UK.
