The South Worcestershire Councils (Malvern Hills District, Worcester City and Wychavon District) are preparing a Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Site Allocations Development Plan Document that that will identify sufficient land for Traveller and Travelling Showpeople sites in order to meet the requirements of the recently adopted South Worcestershire Development Plan (SWDP17).

As part of this process, the South Worcestershire Councils consulted on a Preferred Options document from 9am on Monday 14 March to 5pm on Monday 9 May 2016. The document set out the Council's preferred sites and gave people an opportunity to comment on these. It also asked 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 Preferred Options consultation was in line with Regulation 18 of The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012.
