I want to put a camper on my daughter’s New Hanover County property to live in temporarily. What are the laws? Do we need a permit?

It looks like you’d technically be breaking the rules, according to the New Hanover County Planning Department.

“Occupied travel trailers and campers are only permitted in approved travel trailer parks,” said Ben Andrea, current planning and zoning supervisor. “County regulations prohibit the occupancy of a travel trailer or camper anywhere else in the county’s zoning jurisdiction, including the property indicated by the inquirer. “
