Welcome to the Noticeboard!

This is a website for and about people who live in residential parks in New South Wales.

The noticeboard recognises the unique housing situation of park residents by providing specialised legal information, resources and referral options.

The law applies differently to people who rent both the site and home (renters) and those who rent only the site (home owners). Be aware that some of the information on this site is directed only at one group or the other.
