SEVEN sites have been identified for potential future development for travellers in the Chiltern District.

A draft of the Delivery Development Plan Document was looked at by a Chiltern District Council committee on Tuesday night.

The document said the suitable sites within the built up area of Chiltern District, excluded from the Green Belt, continues to be the main focus for meeting the unmet need for gypsy and traveller sites.

The proposal sites mentioned will be held back until they are absolutely needed under very special circumstances.

The proposed sites are The Orchards in West Hyde Lane, Chalfont St Peter for up to six pitches subject to landfill gas monitoring on an extended site; Three Oaks Farm in Roberts Lane, Chalfont St Peter for three pitches within an existing site and land off Rushmere Lane, Near Orchard Leigh for two pitches on a new site.

Other proposed sites are Waggoners Bit in Whielden Lane, Amersham for two pitches, Green Acres Farm in West Hyde Lane in Chalfont St Peter for two pitches and Tobys Stables in Tobys Lane in Little Missenden for one pitch.

A site for travelling showpeople was proposed at Green Acres Farm in Early Howe Road in Holmer Green for three pitches through reconfiguration of the site or site expansion.
