The Gypsy and Traveller Liaison provide the following services: 

  • Manage the local authority's registered caravan park. This is a registered site where Gypsies and Travellers can reside on a permanent basis on a licence agreement. The site can accommodate up to 26 families and has an allocation policy and waiting list.
  • Deal with and offer advice regarding trespass onto land by gypsies and travellers within the metropolitan borough area, in accordance with present legislation.
  • We may deal with trespass on non-council owned land subject to terms and conditions. For fees and advice regarding this service then contact must be made with the Gypsy Liaison Officers directly (see contact tab).  
  • Arrange or liaise with owners of land for clean up of land after an illegal trespass has been removed.

The Gypsy and Traveller Liaison service do not deal with fairgrounds, circuses and show people.

Any complaints of illegal trespass out of hours should be passed to the police on 101.
