FOI 3374

Gypsy and Travellers

Request

How many a) gypsies and b) travellers have been evicted from authorised sites in each of the last three years.

Response

I am writing to advise that there have been no forced evictions from authorised gypsy and traveller sites in Brentwood Borough Council’s area in the last three years. Authorised sites in Brentwood are privately owned.

The Council has helped re house occupiers at one site with a temporary planning permission in 2010 shortly before the expire of that permission. This was into bricks and mortar accommodation as the occupiers no longer wanted to use their site. After their departure it has been necessary to take planning enforcement action to ensure that empty caravans left behind were removed from site as required by the temporary permission. The enforcement notice concerned was complied with.

I hope this provides the information you require.
