Wildy's Book of the Month: February 2020

This book brings together the areas of law affecting the travelling community. It is the only guide to cover accommodation needs such as planning, site provision, homelessness and eviction as well as other issues impacting on the day to day lives of Gypsies and Travellers such as education, health care and race discrimination.

The Gypsy and Traveller communities in the UK experience widespread deprivation, social exclusion and discrimination. The lack of provision of suitable sites for Gypsies and Travellers is the root cause of most, if not all, of the difficulties that they face living in Great Britain today.

There is now a new legal framework and new policy designed to address the severe shortage of sites. Local authorities now have a duty to assess the need for Gypsy and Traveller sites in their area and to allocate land which will meet the need identified. However, it is likely that it will take a considerable length of time for that exercise to be completed and, meanwhile, rented site provision remains in short supply and Gypsies and Travellers continue to be frustrated in their attempts to develop sites for themselves.

Gypsy and Traveller Law balances straightforward, practical advice with comprehensive coverage of the statutes, regulations, guidance, circulars and a rapidly developing body of case-law.

This is the key reference work for lawyers and advisers working with Gypsies and Travellers and an essential guide for local authorities on their duties to the travelling community and the social and legal implications of failure to fulfil these obligations. Gypsy and Traveller Law also aims to empower Gypsies and Travellers to secure their rights and challenge injustice.
