New laws for residential park occupants announced

Member for Terrigal, Mr Adam Crouch MP, has announced new laws that will provide better protection for occupants of residential parks across the Central Coast have rolled out this week.

“The reforms introduced by the NSW Government bring residential park living into the 21st century through initiatives such as standard compulsory site agreements and condition reports,” Mr Crouch said.

“These reforms will assist the 30,000 people across NSW who live in residential parks to have greater access to clear, consistent information about fees, maintenance and utility changes.

“One of the most important changes is the ability for NSW Fair Trading to remove non-compliant operators from the industry and to have their details published on a public register.

“Fair Trading has worked with residents, park owners and industry groups on these reforms and has been conducting information sessions across the state, including a number of forums across the Central Coast.

“I have met with a number of operators and park residents over the past months and both welcome the new laws that will keep the industry alive and well,” concluded Mr Crouch.
