Gypsy and Traveller Sites Consultation Later This Year

Central Beds Council will consult formally on their gypsy and traveller plan in May/June 2013.

The representations from the public consultation for gypsy and traveller sites will be considered by the Secretary of State.

This week Cllr Young explained that without a gypsy and traveller plan the council has no control and illegal encampments are likely. CBC are legally required to plan for sites up to 2028, and are planning up to 2031 in line with CBC development strategy.

A "pitch" is for one gypsy and traveller household on average 3 to 4 persons.
