Guidance for Local Authorities on Managing Unauthorised Camping by Gypsy/Travellers in Scotland

Wednesday, April 5, 2017

ISBN: 9781786527998

Guidance for local authorities in Scotland to develop effective policies and strategies for responding to unauthorised Gypsy/Traveller sites.

Executive Summary

The Scottish Government published guidance on managing unauthorised camping by Gypsy/Travellers in 2004. It was reviewed twice, and in 2014 the Government committed to a further review, resulting in this new edition.

The revised guidance reflects what we heard from our discussions with stakeholders, and the good practice that is currently being delivered around Scotland.
