We were asked a few years ago if we could house a family over winter whilst they waited for their new house to be completed, we got out of this by saying we'd need to get in-touch with the council to get planning permission for them to stay longer than 28 days, I'm not sure if this is correct but it worked.
I was worried that having so many people living in the caravan we had at that time especially over winter, we'd have ended up with damp problems with in the fabric of the walls.
Turned out to be a good decision because their house to so long to be finished we'd have lost a good part of the following caravanning season.
