Updates – reported Gypsy and Traveller encampments

An unauthorised site will be inspected as soon as practicable and thereafter visited daily by the Corporate Traveller Services Unit (CTSU) until its removal (whether voluntarily or via the bailiff).

Initial notification of a newly arrived encampment will be given to the local MP, local members, the clerk to the local town or parish council, the council’s corporate contact centre, press officer and the police.  Information about the status of the site will then be updated daily on this page.
