Vehicle dwelling and rough sleeping consultation – Bristol

Consultations on Bristol City Council’s approach to rough sleeping encampments and vehicle dwelling encampment in the city.

Whilst  consulting at the same time our approach is different for people sleeping rough than it is for those living in vehicles recognising that their situations are often complex and very different to each other. There are also very different circumstances for individuals within these groupings and the policies reflect this.

Our aim for rough sleeping is to get people off the street as quickly as possible, assess their needs and help provide the necessary support. You can find the consultation at

Our aim for vehicle dwelling is to ensure a measured approach, demonstrating tolerance whilst also being willing to take action when needed. You can find the consultation at
