Gypsy and traveller caravan count
Statistics on Gypsy and Traveller caravans in Wales on both authorised and unauthorised sites are based on survey data (not a sample survey) collected by local authorities on the 16th January 2014.
The count is used to inform the evidence base when assessing bids from local authorities for the Gypsy and Traveller New Sites Grant and Gypsy and Traveller Refurbishment Grant. The commencement of section 225 of the Housing Act 2004 in December 2007 also requires local authorities to carry out an assessment of the accommodation needs of Gypsies and Travellers as part of the review of housing needs in their area.
- There were 881 Gypsy and Traveller caravans reported in the 20 local authorities that responded to the survey in Wales on 16th January 2014.
- In the 20 local authorities that responded there were 83 sites across Wales. The number of caravans ranged from 1 to 117 on each site.
- For the 20 authorities that participated in both the January 2013 and January 2014 count, the number of caravans on authorised sites has decreased by 1 caravan since the January 2013 count.
- There were 68 caravans on unauthorised sites on land owned by Gypsies and Travellers, accounting for 8 per cent of all caravans.
- A further 87 caravans (10 per cent of all caravans) were on unauthorised sites not owned by Gypsies.
Gypsy sites provided by local authorities
- There were 353 pitches on Gypsy and Traveller sites provided by local authorities in Wales on 16th January 2014.
Due to a reporting error, selected data was revised for the January 2013 and July 2013 ‘Gypsy and Traveller Caravan Count’ on the 13th December 2013. Where data has been revised it will be clearly marked with an (r).
