I think the existing tag of tourism=caravan_site fits Normans Bay Caravan Park better that chalet, even though they are static caravans.

The word “caravan” is composed of the words “car” and “van”, both vehicles that are moved on roads. In this respect, “static caravan” is a bit wrong.

The “caravan” on this site are holiday homes with 2 wheels. We all know that these mobile homes only have wheels so that they don’t need a building permit. And you probably save on taxes too. Otherwise, these are normal holiday homes. And no vehicles that are moved on roads.

From wiki of openstreetmap dot org:
"A caravan site, caravan park, motorhome stopover location or RV park is a place where people with caravans / motorhomes / recreational vehicles can stay overnight, or longer, in allotted spaces known as “pitches” or “sites”. …
