Consultation on Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Sites

This consultation has closed.

The South Worcestershire Councils (SWC) i.e. Malvern Hills District, Worcester City and Wychavon District are preparing a Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Site Allocations Development Plan Document that has to identify sufficient land for Traveller and Travelling Showpeople sites in order to meet the requirements of the recently adopted South Worcestershire Development Plan (Policy SWDP 17).

As part of this process, the SWC are consulting on Revised Preferred Options for a seven week period from 28th February to 18th April 2018. This document sets out the SWC preferred sites and gives people an opportunity to comment on these.  It also asks some questions about the types of planning policy we might need to have in place to guide the development of future Traveller and Travelling Showpeople sites.  The Revised Preferred Options consultation is in line with Regulation 18 of The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012.
