A friend has over an acre lot, no HOA, and wonders if the city of Charlotte would object to him parking a camper there? Maybe he's gonna make meth, more likely he just wants a place to get away from his gf. Anyone know if he needs to get a permit or worry about anyone complaining about anything?

Don't ask, don't tell. Don't be permanent.

Probably no problem. Even if there is he would be given every opportunity to comply before any figurative hammer.

I've heard of people doing this in other cities by taking out a building permit. Use lots of time with long breaks between grading, laying the foundation. "I'm building it as fast as I can!" As long as there was an open building permit with construction taking place, the owner could live in a "temporary" (cough) portable unit.

This reminds me of the documentary Tiny: A Story About Living Small, where the homes are the size of campers. Houses that small often don't meet zoning and code requirements, so they are on wheels, since anything that isn't "permanent" sitting in a lot isn't considered a code violation.
