Gypsy and Traveller Local Plan

Work is currently underway on the Gypsy and Traveller Local Plan for Central Bedfordshire that will set out how Central Bedfordshire Council will meet the accommodation needs of the Gypsy and Traveller Community and the Travelling Showpeople Community up to 2031. 

The site assessment process outlined at Overview and Scrutiny on 10th April 2012 is nearing completion and the draft Gypsy and Traveller Local Plan (including potential sites) is expected to go to Overview and Scrutiny on 28th February 2013 for comment. 

The document will then go to CB Executive and Full Council before it is published in May. Following publication there will be a 6 week consultation period where interested parties will have the opportunity to comment on the Gypsy and Traveller Local Plan.
