Tue 8 November 2016, 18:00 – 20:00 GMT
Travelling people do not fit easily with our society and we only hear about threat, mess and eviction. The origins and culture of these people is not well understood and we have never found it easy to find land for travellers’ housing.

Speakers: Professor Robert Home on 'Planning and Housing land for Travellers'; and Dr Maria Faraone from a Romany research background, on ‘Post-Brexit new Planning: Gypsies & Travellers as Outsiders?’ .
