Hi.

I keep seeing people write that they stayed at a "CL" or a "CS".

What do these abbreviations mean?

Thank you.

They're privately owned caravan sites, that can be set up without planning permission, subject to the requirements set out by DEFRA.... the most important of which are that they may have no more than five caravans on site at a time, and they must only be open to members of a specific organisation (or organisations) which must hold the appropriate exemption certificate from DEFRA.

The Caravan Club call theirs CL's (Certified Locations.) The Caravan & Camping Club call theirs CS's (Certified Sites.)

Facilities vary from completely basic (just water and waste disposal facilities) to sites with mains hook-ups, showers and I've even known a couple with swimming pools.

Heh! Heh! Heh! Are we all to be certified when we go to these sites? jump1.gif

Just to be clear, they are "certificated", not certified. wink.gif

Thanks for that!

Learning the caravanning terminology (MIRO, et. al.) was time consuming, and now that I've got that down I run up against the caravanning lingo!

I always thought it was 'certified', but it turns out you're right.
