MP petitions for water meters for park home residents

South East Cornwall MP ,Sheryll Murray, brought a petition to the House of Commons last week from her constituents and others demanding water meters for residents of park homes.


According to the petition, many residential parks are metered at site rather than individual home level, meaning those who live there are denied the opportunity of paying only for the water they use. The petition said residents are “frequently overcharged” by park owners, and “frequently paying for water wasted from delayed repairs to leakages in the site infrastructure”.


It noted that may residents are on fixed incomes, and that beyond the financial benefits from metering to individuals, there would be “collateral benefit” from minimising leaks.


Murray concluded: “The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to require all water companies to provide each residential mobile home on a protected site with water meters and ensure that they fit meters for free on request (excepting Scotland).”
