Complainant Name:
Mr Colin Packman

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Park Home & Holiday Caravan

Complaint:

Mr Colin Packman, President of Park Home Residents Action Alliance, complained that the comparisons in the magazine between park homes and bricks-and-mortar property were misleading, as they failed to take into consideration the difference between the two types of property in terms of tenure arrangements and attendant costs. He was particularly concerned that the magazine had used the word “savings” in the comparison to describe the lower cost of park homes.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the magazine took the decision not to use the term “savings” in this way in future.

Report: 76
