Gypsy and Travellers - planning

Regulation 18 consultation 

Following Cabinet approval on 13 October 2020, we held a Regulation 18 consultation on the intention to prepare a Gypsy and Traveller Development Plan Document between 13 January to 9 March 2021.

The proposed scope of the Gypsy and Travellers DPD is to allocate land for travellers in sustainable locations meeting identified permanent and temporary accommodation needs up to 2036, in line with Government planning policy and legislation. This consultation invited comments on the Plan's scope and our proposed approach to meeting accommodation needs.  

We have now prepared a full consultation report which, along with the submitted responses, can be found below.

The outcomes of this consultation will inform the preparation of the draft Gypsy and Traveller Development Plan Document, which we will then consult on once again.
