- Statistics & Research
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 18 July 2013.
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 983 Gypsy and Traveller caravans reported in the 21 local authorities that responded to the survey in Wales on 18 July 2013.
- In the 21 local autorities that responded there were 91 sites across Wales. The number of caravans ranged from 1 to 115 on each site.
- For the 21 authorities that participated in both the July 2012 and July 2013 count, the number of caravans on authorised sites has increased by 14 per cent (95 caravans) since the July 2012 count. This increase is largely due to the increase in caravans on local authority sites in Cardiff, Pembrokeshire, Flintshire and Merthyr Tydfil.
- There were 38 caravans on unauthorised sites on land owned by Gypsies and Travellers, accounting for 4 per cent of all caravans.
- A further 169 caravans (17 per cent of all caravans) were on unauthorised sites not owned by Gypsies.
Gypsy sites provided by local authorities
- There were 349 pitches on Gypsy and Traveller sites provided by local authorities in Wales on 18 July 2013.
