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 July 2015.
The count is used when assessing bids from Local Authorities for the Gypsy and Traveller Sites Capital Grant. The commencement of section 101 of the Housing (Wales) Act 2014 also requires Local Authorities to carry out an assessment of the accommodation needs of Gypsies and Travellers residing in or resorting to their area.
- There were 1,029 Gypsy and Traveller caravans reported in Wales on 16th July 2015.
- There were 102 sites across Wales.
- Comparing the July 2014 and July 2015 count, the number of caravans has decreased by 2 per cent (17 caravans) on authorised sites.
- There were 72 caravans on unauthorised sites on land owned by Gypsies and Travellers, accounting for 7 per cent of all caravans.
- A further 133 caravans (13 per cent of all caravans) were on unauthorised sites not owned by Gypsy and Travellers.
Gypsy sites provided by local authorities
- There were 474 pitches on Gypsy and Traveller sites provided by Local Authorities in Wales on 16 July 2015.
