Gypsy and Traveller Plan Site Options

GT Front cover May 14Sevenoaks District Council consulted on the first stage of its Gypsy and Traveller Plan in summer 2014. It sought views on potential site options across the District and asked landowners to suggest sites for additional pitches. Inclusion in the consultation document does not mean that sites will definitely be included in the final Plan.

Councils are required by Government to identify the accommodation needs of Gypsies and Travellers and prepare a Plan to show how these needs will be met. The Council needs to provide 72 pitches across the District to 2026.

The proposed site options set out in the document were located in Ash, Edenbridge, Farningham, Halstead, Hextable, Shoreham, Swanley, and West Kingsdown. The call for sites sought further sites across the District.

The deadline for comments was 5pm on Friday 4th July 2014. 

The deadline for additional proposed sites was 5pm on Friday 18th July 2014.
