Unauthorised encampments


The Council recognises and accepts the rights of travellers/gypsies and also those people on whose land unauthorised camping takes place.

Gypsies and travellers are protected from discrimination by the Equalities Act 2010 and the Human Rights Act 1998, together with all ethnic groups who have a particular culture, language or values.

These FAQ explain how the Council and other official agencies will work to try to balance the rights of all those involved.
