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 17th July 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 1,025 Gypsy and Traveller caravans reported in Wales on 17 July 2014.
- There were 99 sites across Wales. The number of caravans ranged from 1 to 95 on each site.
- For the 21 authorities that participated in both the July 2013 and July 2014 count, the number of caravans on authorised sites has increased by 2 caravans since the July 2013 count.
- There were 60 caravans on unauthorised sites on land owned by Gypsies and Travellers, accounting for 6 per cent of all caravans.
- A further 124 caravans (12 per cent of all caravans) were on unauthorised sites not owned by Gypsies.
Gypsy sites provided by local authorities
