We STILL count has been started in response to the Government’s proposed changes to planning law in relation to Gypsies and Travellers.
The Government is trying to make changes to planning policy that will have a huge impact on Gypsies and Travellers. If these changes go through all Gypsies and Travellers who are not travelling will no longer be counted as needing a pitch on a site. #WeSTILLcount has been set up to inform as many people as possible about the changes and suggest things we can do to stop them:
– upload a photo of you and your family in front of your accommodation to Facebook and nominate another family to do the same.
– Make a comment on Facebook adding the #WeSTILLcount to tell the government what you think about this change of definition of Gypsies and Travellers to include only people who are travelling.
– Email PPTS@communities.gsi.gov.uk in the government to tell him what you think about these changes.
