Gypsy and Traveller sites

Sites in Thurrock

We manage 3 travellers' sites with a total of 65 plots. The sites are run by a traveller liaison officer with 2 part-time assistant travellers' wardens.

The sites are located at:

Site address Number of plots
Ship Lane, Aveley, RM15 4HB 21 plots
Gammon Field site, Long Lane, Grays, RM16 2QH 22 plots
Pilgrims Lane site, North Stifford, Grays, RM16 5UZ 22 plots

Residents on these sites rent plots on a licence agreement. They pay a weekly rent plus water rates, and can buy electricity through the site warden.

You should fill out an online housing application form to register your interest in joining the waiting list for a plot at any site.

You can get help with online housing applications at Thurrock libraries.

Action is taken to remove unauthorised encampments on land in Thurrock.
