Gypsies and travellers

Issue with gypsies and travellers

If you become aware of any unauthorised gypsies and travellers within the borough outside of the normal working hours please contact the Control Centre on their out of hours contact number 01455 251137.

If you receive information during working hours please contact the council on 01455 238141 and ask for the Planning Enforcement Officer. If you come across any of these circumstances please can you try and obtain as much information as to the precise location of the reported activity and a brief summary of exactly what is taking place and the number of people involved.

Multi Agency Travellers Unit (MATU)

The MATU was formed in June 2009 with Officers from Leicester City Council, Leicestershire County Council together with a dedicated Police Officer. The unit works closely with all District and Borough Councils as well as the Police. If there is an unauthorised encampment in your area you can either contact MATU directly or the police.

MATU officers should be contacted with concerns about matters on all council land in Leicestershire by telephone 0116 305 8156 or by email at MultiAgencyTravellersUnit@leics.gov.uk.
