Royal Borough residents are being asked for their views on the development of the Traveler Local Plan

The first stage of the development of the Traveller Local Plan asks residents for feedback on an issues and options paper which looks at the health, education and accommodation needs of travellers, gypsies, travelling show people and boat dwellers. Feedback on the options and issues paper is being sought from all residents of the borough including traveling and settled communities.  

Cllr David Coppinger, lead member for planning said: “Ensuring that both our settled and traveller residents have access to the facilities they need to lead happy, healthy lives is vital.

“This consultation is the first stage in the development of our Traveler Local Plan which will outline how we will meet the accommodation needs of traveler communities now and in the future alongside settled communities.

“Evidence shows that providing, high quality sustainable traveler accommodation reduces the occurrence of unauthorised encampments and improves relations with settled communities. Therefore it’s key that we hear from all our residents to ensure we build a borough for everyone.”

The council is legally required to prepare a plan to consider the accommodation needs of some of the specialised communities in the borough including gypsies, travelers, traveling show people and boat dwellers.  Exploring the issues affecting these local communities, and how the borough might meet them is the first stage in the preparation of the Traveller Local Plan.

The consultation will run from Monday 14 January until Monday 25 February and respondents can submit their comments online, by email or by post.
