Affiliated Residential Park Residents Association - N.S.W.
In 1999 PHOA made contact with ARPRA, which is another Australian "grass-roots" association that represents park residents throughout the State of New South Wales, Australia.
ARPRA was formed in 1987 and had already been involved in drafting new State legislation that applied specifically to the park lifestyle - the Residential Parks Act 1998. A review has been undertaken of the Act and the resultant Residential Parks Amendment (Statutory Review) Bill 2005 was passed through the NSW Parliament at the end of 2005.
In April 2006 the new legislation became law as Amendments to the NSW Residential Parks Act.
