Caravanners win court battle
Thursday, 13 April 2017
CAUSEWAY Coast and Glens Borough Council could be facing a flood of compensation claims after a court ruled it was wrong to prevent a couple accessing their caravan during winter months.
Until 2014, caravanners at Juniper Hill, on the Coast Road between Portrush and Portstewart, could visit their static vans at weekends between October and April.
But that year essential electrical maintenance work required closure of the entire park.
That prompted one couple to take the council to court over an alleged breach of its license agreement which, they said, made no provision for excluding tenants.
The fee for a pitch at Juniper Hill in 2014 was £2,279 and the couple sought damages of £2,500.
