ADDITIONAL provisions for Travellers are currently being looked into by South Bucks District Council.
The Council are currently developing a ‘Gypsies and Travellers Plan’ which will determine what additional provisions should be sought, to be more accommodating.
The plan is being developed in accordance with national policy on 'Planning Policy for Traveller Sites' and the Housing Act 2004.
The plan states that local authorities should be able to demonstrate a five year supply of deliverable sites to provide for the needs of Gypsies and Travellers.
The District Council is setting out to “provide an understanding of Gypsy and Traveller communities and the accommodation needs of Gypsies, Travellers and Travelling Show people in the ten year period to 2023.”
SBDC are currently holding a consultation on these plans. You can have your say on the consultation by visiting: www. southbucks.gov.uk
