We have a Gypsy Liaison team responsible for the management of permanent caravan parks in Hull. We help residents to get access to mainstream services. We also liaise with residents and external services to promote community development.
Our services are delivered in line with our policy to Gypsies and travellers.
Permanent caravan site locations
Hull has four permanent caravan parks for the Gypsy and Traveller community -

Pitches consist of a concrete hard standing for one or two caravans, a brick built amenity block with toilet facilities, kitchen, bath or shower and a limited amount of storage space.
To apply for a pitch you need to complete an application which is available below or from the Gypsy and Traveller Liaison Officer - see address below. Please note there are a limited number of spaces, so there is a waiting list for all sites.

Local residents concerns
We aim to ensure that the needs and concerns of local residents are balanced with needs of the travelling communities.
If you have concerns about Travellers or Gypsies on land near you, you can contact us.
If the land is private, it is the responsibility of the landowner to take appropriate action. If the land is council land, and is not approved as a permanent caravan site, you can notify us and we will take the appropriate steps.
