The Local Plan sets out a commitment to drafting two Development Plan Documents (DPDs):

  • Gypsy and Traveller DPD
  • Canal DPD

Gypsy and traveller DPD

This DPD will allocate land for both permanent and transit sites to meet the needs identified in the Council’s Gypsy & Traveller Accommodation Assessment (GTAA).

As part of the process of developing the Local Plan, a number of steps were undertaken to identify how the needs of the Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Show communities could be met. A summary of those steps can be found below.
