Travellers' Liaison Officer

Everyone has rights, including Travellers and Gypsies and people on whose land unauthorised camping takes place.

Norfolk County Council has a Travellers' Liaison Officer based at County Hall in Norwich. The Travellers' Liaison Officer is responsible for all issues relating to travellers and local communities in the whole of the county area.

They have a procedure in place to:

  • address the need for effective management of unauthorised Gypsy and Traveller encampments whilst ensuring the rights of both the Gypsy and Traveller and settled community are met
  • make sure the county, district and borough councils are working together with all agencies to meet the needs of Gypsies, Travellers and the settled communities

For further information, please call Norfolk County Council Travellers Liaison Office on 01603 222473 or visit the Norfolk County Council website.
