We are committed to meeting the housing needs of all sections of our community. For a number of Gypsies and Travellers, appropriate housing means designated sites rather than 'bricks and mortar' housing.
The Greater Norwich Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment, August 2012, provides information about the needs of Gypsies and Travellers.
In Norwich there are two official residential traveller sites:
- Mile Cross
- Costessey - Roundwell.
Norfolk County Council provides travellers' sites and the travellers' liaison officer, based at County Hall in Norwich, is responsible for all issues relating to travellers and local communities in the whole county.
Norfolk has three other official traveller sites:
- Great Yarmouth (transit site)
- Swaffham (residential site)
- King's Lynn - Saddlebow (residential site).
