...p. Elitestone LtdR. v Swansea City Council Ex p. Elitestone Ltd (1993) 66 P. & C.R. 422 applied. Generally, a mobile caravan would not satisfy that definition, having regard to factors of permanence and attachment. On the findings of fact by the inspector, there were ample grounds for his conclusion that the caravans did not constitute "buildings" within the meaning of s.336(1) of the 1990 Act; (2) the definition of "caravan" in s.29(1) of the 1960 Act was applied to the definition of "caravan site" in s.336(1) of the 1990 Act. That required consideration whether a particular structure was mobile or potentially mobile in the context of the relevant legislation. It would offend the purpose of s.55(1) and Part III and Part IV of the 1990 Act for the control of development to conclude that all caravans were structures and therefore "buildings". The provisions of s.336(1) of the 1990 Act did not require the application of the definition of "caravan site" to the definition of "building"; (3) further, it would conflict with the purpose of the 1990 Act to treat mobile caravans as buildings as of right, and in the instant case the caravans lacked the degree of permanence and attachment to constitute buildings, and (4) as to bias, the correct test was whether ...
