CAMPING AND PARKING OF CARAVANS
URBAN PLANNING CODE
Chapter III: Camping and parking of caravans
a) In the municipalities where a local urban plan or a municipal map has been approved, in the name of the municipality or of the public establishment of inter-municipal cooperation or of the State, according to the cases and modalities provided for in Articles L. 421-2-1 to L. 421-2-8; the provisions of Article L. 421-9 are then applicable;
b) In other municipalities, on behalf of the State.
If these sites are served by a public sewerage network, the provisions of article L. 421-5 of this code are applicable to their delivery.
A decree in the Council of State defines the mobile leisure residence, the light leisure accommodation and the caravan, as well as the conditions under which they can be installed or established. The planning permission takes the place of a building permit, where applicable.
At the end of the allotted time, if the authority competent to issue the planning permission finds that these prescriptions are not respected, it can order the closure of the site and the evacuation of the occupants until the prescriptions have been fulfilled.
In the event of failure of the competent authority, the prefect of the department can replace it after formal notice has remained ineffective.
If one of the zones referred to in this article is covered by a plan for the prevention of foreseeable natural risks established in application of law n ° 87-565 of 22 July 1987 relating to the organization of civil security and the protection of forest fire prevention and the prevention of major risks, the prescriptions laid down in application of this article must be compatible with those defined by this plan.
A decree in Council of State fixes the modalities of application of this article.
