Unauthorised development

This is where a site is owned by Gypsies and Travellers, but they don't have planning permission to develop the land, such as stationing caravans.

You can report unauthorised development to us.

Unauthorised encampments

This is trespassing by Gypsies and Travellers on land which they do not own. This includes playing fields, any part of the highway, farmers’ fields, car parks or any other public and private land. 

You need to report unauthorised encampments to the Essex County Traveller Unit.
