Gypsies and Travellers

Gypsies and Travellers' sites

We do not provide a site for travelling people. However, there is a private site at Lake View Caravan Park, Penrith.

Gypsies and Travellers' rights

Everyone has rights, including Travellers, Gypsies and people on whose land unauthorised camping takes place.

Gypsies and Travellers are protected from discrimination by the Race Relations Act 1976 and the Human Rights Act 1998, together with all ethnic groups who have a particular culture, language or values.
