Gypsy and Traveller Site Allocations Development Plan Document (DPD)

Development Plan Document (DPD) Scoping Report

The consultation is now closed. The public consultation on the Gypsy and Traveller DPD, and the associated Sustainability Appraisal (SA), ran for an 8 week period from 2 July to 27 August 2018.

This was the first formal stage in the planning process (known as Regulation 18 consultation). The consultation included a number of questions which consultees were invited to answer. The purpose of this consultation was to inform statutory consultees, the public and relevant organisations of our intention to produce a DPD; the progress made so far and to consider what the DPD ought to contain. 

In addition, we formally invited the submission of potential sites and supporting information as part of a 'call for sites' to meet the needs of the Gypsy and Traveller community.

The responses received as part of this consultation were taken into account within the Options DPD.
