Sites we manage

Surrey County Council directly manages 15 sites:

  • Littleton Lane, Shepperton
  • Swift Lane, Bagshot
  • The Willows, Runfold
  • Travellers Rest, Mickleham
  • Conifer Park, Kiln Lane, Epsom

Guildford Borough Council manages two sites on this Council's behalf:

  • Clasford Bridge, Normandy
  • Ash Bridge, Ash

These are permanent sites with plots for which the Traveller signs a licence and pays rent. They should not be confused with transit sites, of which Surrey County Council has none.

There are over 50+ Gypsy/Traveller sites across the county, most are privately owned and do not come under the Council or local authority responsibility.

Surrey County Council holds a waiting list for Gypsies and Travellers who wish to be considered for plots on any of the sites owned and managed directly by the Council.
