Gypsy and Traveller Unauthorised Encampments
Gypsies and Travellers are protected from discrimination by the Race Relations Act 1976 and the Human Rights Act 1998, together with all ethnic groups who have a particular culture, language or values.
Everyone has rights, including Gypsies/Travellers and people on whose land unauthorised camping takes place.
The aim of this information is to set out how the Council and other official agencies will work to try to balance the rights of all those involved.
