Mobile homes pitch fees - annual uprating index: consultation

This consultation asks for views on changing the measure for uprating pitch fees for Scottish contracts under the Mobile Homes Act 1983 from Retail Prices Index to Consumer Prices Index, and on options for making the change in legislation.

Consultation Proposal

23. As RPI is no longer considered a suitable measure of inflation, we propose to amend the presumed basis of pitch fee uprating from RPI to CPI through primary legislation so that the change is made to all Scottish contracts under the Mobile Homes Act 1983, existing and future.

24. We are considering whether it would be appropriate for Ministers to be able to update the index in future via secondary legislation, to keep pace with developments in statistics and would like to gather your views.
