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 14 July 2016.
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 994 Gypsy and Traveller caravans reported in Wales on 14 July 2016.
There were 118 sites across Wales.
Comparing the July 2015 and July 2016 count, the number of caravans has increased by 1 per cent (5 caravans) on authorised sites.
There were 56 caravans on unauthorised sites on land owned by Gypsies and Travellers, accounting for 6 per cent of all caravans.
A further 109 caravans (11 per cent of all caravans) were on unauthorised sites not owned by Gypsy and Travellers.
Gypsy sites provided by local authorities
There were 487 pitches on Gypsy and Traveller sites provided by Local Authorities in Wales on 14 July 2016.
