The council is producing a Travellers' Sites Document as part of its Local Plan. This will focus on the accommodation needs of the Traveller community (Gypsies, Travellers and Travelling Show People) up to 2031. It will allocate some sites for the first five years and identify broad locations of search for the longer term.
A public consultation on the Preferred Options closed on 19 September 2016. A public consultation on the Pre-submission draft document ran from Monday 6 November to Monday 18 December 2017. The Travellers' Sites Document was submitted for examination on 27 February 2018.
The updated Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Needs Assessment November 2015 sets out the requirements for the number of pitches and plots up to 2031.
