Now that site operators are insisting on housing the elderly vulnerable residents, it is time they were placed under a duty of care for these people.
Two items have recently been brought to our attention:
1. Street Lighting
Present Model Standards just state...
"roads & footpaths should be suitably lit"
there needs to be added...
"during the hours of darkness and at the site owners expense"
2. Icy Roads
Site Owners should have a duty of care towards their elderly residents by ensuring icy/snowbound roads are suitably treated at the site owners cost.
A fall to an elderly person could be fatal and don't let us hear the cry "they should stay inside"
They have a DUTY OF CARE under the LIABILITY ACT 1957 & OCCUPIERS LIABILITY ACT 1984
