Thank you for your question.
I assume the caravan site is privately owned. If that is the case then the owner can decide who can move to the site and who can't without giving a reason. Of course the reason is because of the ASBO but, whether that is justified or not, the owner doesn't have to be bothered unless he is discriminating on ground of age, sex race etc.
I'm afraid this isn't harassment not does it appear to be discrimination and there's nothing you can realistically do about it.
I'm sorry to advise in this way but that is the legal position.
Happy to discuss further.
Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
