Permanent sites for Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities


We have six permanent Gypsy, Roma and Traveller sites in County Durham.

We are committed to provide and manage the pitches on our permanent sites to enable Gypsy and Traveller families to live in caravans / mobile homes.

We support the role of the site warden by making sure that the communities are able to live in quiet enjoyment of their mobile home.

Apply for a pitch

You can apply for a pitch if you are aged 16 or over, you have a caravan or access to a caravan and meet the eligibility criteria. Pitches are allocated in line with Durham Key Options and Gypsy Roma Traveller Policy which sets out what factors will be taken into account when deciding who should get priority access to a pitch.

For support with an application or more information, contact us.
