These recent (March/April 2010) articles are telling about development decision making and social exclusion in my local area. The caravan parks made the news in the past few years with stories about violence, murder and child abuse. They have also attracted the attention of the Department of Communities and other agencies. I was once told the caravan parks play an important role in emergency housing for local service agencies which were at pains to find sufficient places for people in need. I’ve noted the rise in suburban homelessness lately with increasing numbers of women and men obviously living rough.
