Residential parks include both mixed-use caravan parks and dedicated residential parks.
Dedicated residential parks may provide a housing option usually below the licences for resident-funded retirement village units. Residents own the home but not the land itself; they rent the site from the park owner / operator for the site.
Mixed use parks offer rental accommodation in cabins or caravans owned by the park operator and may be an affordable rental option.
