Cornwall Council’s Bid for £1.5m for Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation

Cornwall Council’s Bid for £1.5m for Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation

Cornwall Council has bid for £1.5 million to solve the problems faced by Gypsies and Travellers who have no legal place to call home or to temporarily stop in Cornwall. Currently there are around 20 unauthorised sites, with most ‘tolerated’ by the Council, because there is simply no where else for the Gypsies and Travellers to live.

If successful the bid will provide seven new residential and transit sites. The preference of most Gypsies and Travellers surveyed for the 2006 Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment (pdf) was for small, unobtrusive sites and this has been recognised by the Council in their bid.
