Hello, I am a solicitor with 20 years experience. I will try to answer this for you.
I am sorry to hear about your situation.
You are on your son's land as his tenant or as his guest? Why are you paying council tax? Shouldn't your son be paying that for the whole property, with a contribution from you if agreed between you.
Also, if your son allows you to stay as his guest, why has that gpt anything at all to do with the planning department.
IF you give me this information I may be able to help.

My son got the Static to rent out weekly in the summer,but as things happened,I moved into the caravan,paying £250-00 monthly which electric and water are all in,I am on disability benefit,so the council pay the rent,within 2 weeks the council were here looked round,then sent me a council tax bill,of which the council also pay,my son does pay his own council tax,he and his girlfriend 4 children and girlfriends mother live in the farmhouse,it's a non-working farm now,

the planning department say I am not allowed to live permenantly in the Static caravan,also we should of had planning permission to put it on the land,they have told me to vacate in 3 months,I have no where to go,

also would discourage my son from putting in for planning,as they do not think we would be given it,

do you think we should of gone as my being a guest?

I did not want them loosing out on holiday letting money by my moving in.
