||<p>The Government is concerned about unauthorised traveller encampments and the effect
that they can have on communities. Local authorities and the police have a wide range
of powers that enable them to take action and the Government wants to see them working
together to address this issue. A summary of the powers is published on the Government’s
website at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dealing-with-illegal-and-unauthorised-encampments"
