A Gypsy and Traveller site on Teesside has been awarded a cash boost to improve facilities.
The grant will pay for better facilities on the site
Middlesbrough Council will use the £45,000 grant to refurbish the Metz Bridge site in the town.
The funding follows a second round of bidding for part of a £56m government allocation to provide new and refurbished sites nationally.
It is hoped that improving authorised sites will tackle the problem of unauthorised camping.
Communities Minister, Meg Munn said: "The grant is vital in our drive to increase the number of authorised sites for Gypsies and Travellers.
"Providing more authorised sites reduces the cost to taxpayers of costly enforcement action and creates a sustainable solution for the whole community."
