Thread: Mobile home park density regulations

    Mobile home park density regulations

    I am involved in a zoning matter involving what would be viewed as reasonable desity for a suburban mobile home park. I am looking for source material, reports, PAS reports, case studies, etc.

    Based on experience: there are a lot of nice parks at 5-6 units/acre. Much beyond that begins to seem crowded. I suppose a really good design on a good site could accommodate a few more units and still be pleasant, but I would start with 6 as the max.

    If "mobile homes" are "single family residences," why aren't they treated as "single family residences" with the same density and open space requirements?

    We don't consider them single family homes. They have their own category.

    In most by-laws they are not considered a SFD.

    Defining location is difficult, unless each individual pad/site is considered a lot and defined as such.
