Department for Communities and Local Government Consultation on Planning and Travellers

The Government have produced disastrous proposals about planning as it relates to Gypsies and Travellers.  CLP hosted a workshop for Gypsy and Traveller support groups and representatives on Monday 6 October 2014 in Birmingham to discuss the consultation. Everyone agreed it was a very useful and informative session. We attach here the briefing paper, appendices and report back from the workshop.

No Mad Laws Campaign

This campaign consists of Gypsy and Traveller support groups and representatives and Gypsies and Travellers themselves who have joined together to highlight the disastrous effect that the Coalition Government’s legal aid and judicial review reforms will have upon Gypsies and Travellers.
