The EQIA ensures that the policy has taken account of impacts on Equalities.

Executive Summary

Research by Consumer Focus in 2013 identified 92 mobile home sites in Scotland, with around 3,314 residential mobile homes. The majority of sites have fewer than 50 residential homes. Sites are concentrated in 6 local authority areas: Perth and Kinross, Dumfries and Galloway, Fife, Angus, Argyll and Bute, and Aberdeen.

The provisions in the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 which establish a new licensing system are part of a set of measures that are intended to significantly strengthen the protections enjoyed by permanent mobile home residents.
