Sorry, but I have to give you the same answer to that same question. It is extremely unlikely you will find anywhere in Britain that will accept a static that they haven't sold. It's a sad fact in rip-off Britain, I'm afraid. Age makes very little difference to this.

Despite the offer of "peanuts", and I'm sure that's what it is, often the best bet is to accept and buy again elsewhere. This is why I would never buy a static in Britain, even if I could afford one. Site owners seem to have an unwritten agreement among themselves never to accept a static from any other site.

Tingdene Lifestyle are still advertising acceptance for bring-ons on some parks.
https://www.tingdenelifestyleparks.co.uk/bring-your-caravan-to-us.
Possibly not the areas you are interested in, but could be worth contacting them to ask.
As ColinD says, parks that accept bring-ons are few and far between, and often the cost of disconnection, transfer and resiting can outweigh the benefits of moving anyway.
Even if you find a park that suits which will accept, make sure to read the contract very very carefully - parks are a business and have to make a profit, so there may be some clauses about minimum and maximum periods etc.

Tingdene were accepting them at Broadlands on Oulton Broad when I was last there. Not quite where you want but might be worth checking.

if you do move it, post on here so at least others can consider it? details such as cost. length of contract etc

as others have pointed out, there are very rare opportunities to relocate at a good price and a decent tenure.

Disabled mum???

Has it been modified in any way for your mum, Wheelchair access, rails, adapted aids etc???

Maybe you could use the disabled discrimination act in some way?

May be worth a try, but I would think success would be extremely unlikely. Looking at it from the site owners perspective, they aren't discriminating against anybody, as their rules apply to all. They are in business to make money, and they will maximise their profits any legal way they can. It's their site, and they have every right to accept or deny whoever and whatever they like. Refusing to allow on site any unit they haven't sold is their right, however unfair it may be, and it's perfectly legal.

i think trying to use the disabled discrimination act is wrong. it is a great act that shouldnt be abused. as colin pointed out, there is no discrimination in offering peanuts for a valuable asset, when they do the same for everyone !

perhaps another haven site would take it ?
