Review Of Powers

Housing Minister Dominic Raab announced that there will be a review of powers to tackle unauthorised encampments /developments.

Housing Act 1996

This Act defined a person as homeless if they have accommodation but cannot secure entry to it

Homelessness Act 2002

By July of 2003, all local authorities were required to develop housing strategies that reviewed and predicted levels of homelessness within the authority’s area.

Planning Policy For Traveller Sites

the planning system discriminates against Gypsies and Travellers with 99% of applications refused, as opposed to 10% of applications from the settled community.

The deadline for responses is 15 June 2018

Consultation Document

The consultation document has an unfortunate negative tone.

enforcement powers regarding both unauthorised encampments and developments are already sufficient and don’t need to be made any stronger.

It is essential that as many as possible of those who support Gypsies and Travellers respond to this including Gypsies and Travellers themselves.

Press Release

Government review of the law and powers to deal with unauthorised caravan sites and developments has been announced by the Housing Minister.

Support

Please support us to protect and maintain their cultural and traditional way of life. The Gypsy Traveller Demonstration took place on Saturday 21st May 2016 

The Demonstration was a March with the community, placards, horses, banners and a petition! The petition was to support the UK’s Romany Gypsy and Traveller people, in bringing down a new law which seeks to meddle with who they are and deny their children a home.
