Permanent Gypsy, Roma and Traveller sites

We have six permanent Gypsy, Roma and Traveller sites in County Durham.

We are committed to provide and manage the pitches on our permanent sites to enable Gypsy and Traveller families to live in caravans / mobile homes.

We support the role of the site warden by making sure that the communities are able to live in quiet enjoyment of their mobile home.

Pitches are allocated in line with our Gypsy Roma Traveller Policy which sets out what factors will be taken into account when deciding who should get priority access to a pitch.
