Con­sul­ta­tion over po­ten­tial trav­eller sites is to be­gin

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

HUNT­ING­DON­SHIRE District Coun­cil is seek­ing res­i­dents’ views on po­ten­tial lo­ca­tions for new gypsy and trav­ellers’ sites.

Con­sul­ta­tion meet­ings will be held at the New Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, in Ram­sey on June 17 from 2pm to 8pm and Pathfinder House Civic Suite in Hunt­ing­don on July 8 from 2pm to 8pm.

The con­sul­ta­tion will put for­ward sites for pub­lic opin­ion that are ei­ther on pub­lic land within ma­jor devel­op­ment ar­eas or in other ar­eas which have been put for­ward by pri­vate landown­ers.

It will also con­sider land iden­ti­fied in the third part of the coun­cil’s Strate­gic Hous­ing Land Avail­abil­ity As­sess­ment (SHLAA).

The coun­cil will use the in­for­ma­tion in­cluded in the SHLAA and com­ments from the con­sul­ta­tion to draft a plan­ning doc­u­ment to al­lo­cate enough sites to meet the East of Eng­land Re­gional Spa­tial Strat­egy’s tar­gets.

These are that the coun­cil pro­vides 46 ex­tra per­ma­nent pitches and 10 tran­sit pitches by 2021.
