Groups of travellers occasionally camp on land in the District with their caravans and vehicles.
In certain circumstances, the Council may be able to assist local landowners with the eviction of Travellers. For more information contact Environmental Health on the contact details below.
When Travellers move away, they may leave behind accumulations of rubbish and waste materials and the responsibility for clearing the land rests with the landowner.
If the landowner is aware that waste is being deposited on the land, the Environment Agency, as the Waste Regulation Authority, should be contacted for advice on 0800 807060. The Environment Agency has powers to take enforcement action against persons who deposit controlled waste on land.
Removing illegal encampments and clearing up afterwards can be a time consuming and expensive business and it is in landowners interests to take appropriate steps to secure their land against trespassers.
To report an incursion of Travellers onto land in the District, please provide details on the Traveller complaints form
