There are around 16,000 Gypsy and Traveller caravans in England; 75% of caravans are on authorised sites and are accepted as part of the community, however some towns are seeing an increase in unauthorised encampments, staying on green parks and areas and subsequently having an impact on local residents.

Kingdom Environmental Protection are now providing Barnsley council with a Gypsy and Traveller Liaison Officer for 16 hours a week from 13 October, providing an essential service to families of the Gypsy and Traveller community, as well as residents of Barnsley. The role will include responsibilities such as promoting good community relations, improving access to services for Gypsies and Travellers and responding to complaints about encampments.

Kingdom Environmental Protection work closely with their customers to devise a security solution that is robust and suit their customers’ requirements.  For more information about environmental protection services, click here.
