The South Worcestershire Councils (Malvern Hills, Worcester and Wychavon) are preparing a Travellers and Travelling Showpeople Site Allocations Development Plan Document which will set out the requirement for the number of pitches and plots to be provided to meet the needs of Travellers and Travelling Showpeople in south Worcestershire over the coming years.
The final Development Plan Document (DPD) will allocate new sites or extensions / intensifications to existing Travellers and Travelling Showpeople sites and will become part of the Development Plan for the South Worcestershire Councils (SWCs).
The Travellers and Travelling Showpeople Site Allocations Development Plan Document (TTS DPD) allocates sites to meet the need as identified in the Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment (GTAA, October 2019).
The TTS DPD is informed by a Sustainability Appraisal (SA) which will contribute to the evidence base with the aim of delivering sustainable development.
For the purposes of this consultation an Interim Sustainability Appraisal has been prepared to set out the assessment of the strategic options and sites. A full Sustainability Appraisal Report will be published alongside the Publication version of the Plan.
The South Worcestershire Councils are publishing the Preferred Options for the Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Local Plan (known as the Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Site Allocations Development Plan Document) for a 7 week public consultation starting on 17 May and closing at 23:59 on 5 July 2021.
