POSTPONED: Know Your Rights: Vehicle Dwelling and the Law

July 7 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM


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: https://www.bristol.gov.uk/documents/20182/33135/BCC++Vehicle++Dwelling+Encampment+Policy+final2.pdf/710086b0-e8c9-36a7-b588-24e29e940555

Suggested donation £4 but no-one will be turned away through lack of funds.

The School of Activism 2.0 is a 2 week programme of workshops, talks and activities brought to you by Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft over the Easter holidays. The workshops are intended to be empowering experiences equipping people with the tools to challenge the status quo, contest power structures and ultimately to change the world.

We learn by doing.
We make our own future.
