Retirement of team leaders
With effect from 1 July 2020, Alan Savory, David Tweddle and Sheila Aldous will have retired from the IPHAS team. Alan and David have been Senior Consultants for a number of years: Alan has been with IPHAS since the beginning in 1993 and David joined in 2005. Sheila has been the Membership Secretary, and has handled administration details since 2009.
The clock has beaten us in that we have reached an age where family and personal reasons require us to retire to a more peaceful life without the complications of park home legislation, tribunals and government meetings.
Sadly, we are also losing Pat Winfield from the post of membership secretary which she has held for a number or years.
But, IPHAS will carry on its work, overseen by the remaining consultant and advisors. We wish them every success in the future.
Who We Are
The Independent Park Home Advisory Service (IPHAS) is a voluntary organisation offering advice and information to anyone contemplating Mobile/Park Home living or is already living on a residential Mobile Home Park in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. The team members are residents who have made the effort to study the legislation relating to mobile homes and work alongside
Government to promote and review changes in legislation. All team members have many years experience in advising residents and in dealing with troublesome or unscrupulous park owners.

URGENT - Please Read
As you will have read in ‘The Advisor’, from the 1st July IPHAS has a new administration team.
Although we have lost the invaluable services of four of our most experienced team members, IPHAS will continue to provide advisory and membership services. However, we must ask for your forbearance whilst we complete the handover from the previous administration.
We are now recruiting volunteers and will need experienced administrators as well as trainee advisors. We would also like to recruit a couple of members to create and maintain a Facebook Platform Page. We believe this will be a valuable addition to our existing communications, enabling us to inform you of any changes in Park Home matters as and when they happen.
All roles are part time and can be tailored to the amount of time a team member wishes to devote to serving the needs of IPHAS members. Training and continuing support is available for these roles and expenses relative to the requirements of each individual role are paid.
This is also an opportunity to review all aspects of our operations. IPHAS incurs a large administrative overhead, something we urgently need to address. Like all organisations, we must be considerate of our carbon footprint and with the continuing pandemic, we must evaluate how best to continue providing important services and information in the most efficient, safe and cost effective manner possible. Therefore we are moving ahead with plans to give increasing focus to e-communications rather than paper.
