Detail of outcome
From 5 April 2018 to 15 June 2018, we consulted on powers for dealing with unauthorised development and encampments. On 6 February 2019 we published a summary of the consultation responses and the government’s way forward.
In our response, we have set out a package of measures to strengthen police powers and to assist local authorities in responding to unauthorised development and encampments, in addition to support for Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.
This consultation asks a series of questions relating to powers for dealing with unauthorised development and encampments, including:
- local authority and police powers
- court processes
- planning enforcement
- the provision of authorised sites
- the impacts on the travelling community
