Gypsies and travellers

Keith has taken on cases that are far from popular in tabloid eyes. He has defended the eviction of hundreds of Gypsies and Travellers, including over 6 years of litigation for Dale Farm in the High Court and the Court of Appeal.

Connors v UK, in the ECtHR, was a landmark decision conducted by Keith.

He has pursued homelessness review appeals to challenge the failure of councils to properly take into account aversion to bricks and mortar accommodation and significant psychological harm from unsuitable accommodation, also arguing that councils should not be allowed to rely on their own failure to provide Traveller sites.
