Know Your Rights: Vehicle Dwelling and the Law

Bristol City Council’s policy on vehicle dwelling in the city is a murky and confusing thing. Since the definition of an encampment was expanded to include any site of two vehicles or more, people living in vehicles have found that their situations have become increasingly precarious. With vehicles being impounded and vehicle dwellers being moved on, another potential option for those caught up in the Bristol housing crisis is becoming yet more difficult.
In this session the Van Dwellers Community will talk you through the national legal situation, Bristol City Council’s local policies, and how these approaches play out day to day on the streets. See the council’s policy here and here.
A lot of work, discussion and negotiation has gone on throughout the pandemic to create a fairer and healthier situation for vehicle dwellers in Bristol. How has that affected people’s rights & freedoms in the city?
Tickets cost £4 on the door with no-one turned away through lack of funds.
