Lisa Scullion, Philip Brown

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


In July 2012 Hull City Council commissioned the Salford Housing & Urban Studies Unit (SHUSU) at the University of Salford to produce an updated Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Accommodation Assessment. The primary purpose of this assessment was to provide up to date information and data regarding the needs and requirements of the Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople communities. This report presents the projection of permanent and transit requirements for the period 2012 – 2028. The assessment was undertaken by conducting a review of the following data sources: previous assessments of need and information submitted through the previous regional planning process; the policy and guidance context; the bi-annual Caravan Count; information from the local authority with regards to pitch provision and supply; information from key stakeholders; and a survey of 99 Gypsy and Traveller households.
