Dear South Kesteven District Council,

Please find below a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

I am currently researching into the amount of Gypsy Traveller site provision in the East Midlands region. Due to the nature of the research I would be grateful if the following information could be supplied:

1.What was the official recorded Gypsy Traveller population prior to 1968 (the latest count prior to 1968) and the amount of authorised site provision in your area in the same year?
2.What was the official recorded Gypsy Traveller population in 1974 (or nearest count after) and the amount of authorised site provision in your area in the same year?
3.What was the official recorded Gypsy Traveller population in 2000 (or the nearest count after) and the amount of authorised site provision in your area in the same year?
4.What are the most recent figures for Gypsy Traveller population and amount of authorised site provision in your area? Are there any proposals to either maintain, lower or increase the amount of site provision in your area and if so what is proposed?

For each separate year please could the overall Gypsy Traveller population figures be supplied along with a break down of these figures to include the amount of Gypsy Travellers who reside in bricks in mortar housing (where known) and the amount to be residing on official sites?

Please could the figures for site provision include the overall number of sites and the capacity for each site?

Yours faithfully,

Rebecca Fletcher
