The Government defines unauthorised encampments as ‘encampments of caravans and/or other vehicles on land without the landowner or occupier’s consent and constituting trespass’.
Unauthorised encampments fall into two main categories:
- those on land owned by local authorities (highways, schools, public parks and car parks)
- those on privately owned land.
An unauthorised development refers to a caravan/trailer or group of caravans/trailers on land owned (possibly developed) by Gypsies and Travellers without planning permission.
