About unauthorised encampments

We are responsible for managing and monitoring any unauthorised camping on our land and we have powers to remove anyone camped illegally on public land in our area.

If unauthorised camping occurs on privately-owned land it is the responsibility of the landowner to take legal action to remove any trespassers.

Contact the police if you have a complaint regarding criminal activity, a breach of the peace or anti-social behaviour in connection with an unauthorised encampment.
