Traveller Costs

Request

Could you provide information on the number of times you have moved travellers on, how long it takes, as well as the costs of moving them on.



Could you provide this in table form for the past three financial years, or up until the most recent date that you hold records to. If it is possible, I would like this part of the response in table form.


I would like the date you were alerted to each incident in the first row.


Could you then provide corresponding rows for:
length of time it took to move the travellers on
cost in legal fees - to obtain and deliver directions to leave to travellers, and to obtain court date and summons to evict them
cost of booking bailiffs and paying bailiffs to remove travellers
cost of clean up after removal
cost of target hardening/ improving defences to prevent travellers returning
any additional costs

Could you also total the costs for each year and give the average number of time it took to move travellers on each year.


If this form is not appropriate for the manner in which you keep records, please respond as you deem fit.


If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to cost of compliance, please let me know how to alter my request as per Section 16 obligations.

Clean Up Costs
We do not keep records of cleaning up after Travellers as it is not a recharge to anyone
