Brighton & Hove's Traveller Strategy

Making a difference with our strategy

Over the lifetime of our strategy we would like to:

  • reduce the number of unauthorised encampments by making proper provision for well managed stopping places for Travelling communities such as through the provision of a permanent site
  • improve educational attainment within local travelling communities
  • improve health, safety and wellbeing amongst local Travelling communities
  • improve community cohesion by increasing awareness and understanding between travelling communities and residents of the city
  • reduce the incidence of unauthorised encampments on the city’s parks and open spaces
  • tackle domestic and sexual violence, anti-social behaviour and nuisance
  • reduce racism, prejudice and hate crime.
