Is anyone familiar with a test case that reached the Appelate court level in either North or South Carolina, regarding the restricting placement of a mobile home. The decision reached was that because mobile homes (including single wides) meet HUD requirements, no Governmental body could impose further restrictions upon them. This includes city, state, municipal, and count planning commissions and boards, ect. Private parties could place limitations when they sold or dubdivided property, vis deed restrictions but governmental bodies could not. A state could place additional restrictions, but as a consequence but as a consequence would have to accept Federally imposed penalties. These included the cessation of Federally funded programs (Highways, Medicaid, etc, etc.) The city in question gave up the fight against mobile home placement restrictions. If you have any information about this case please post immediately.
