Policy 11 – Provision for the Gypsy and Traveller Community

Previous Gypsy and Traveller appraisals and government consultations have provided evidence that it is best practise to limit sites to under 15 pitches – Romani Way already stretches this figure to 17.  The proposal to increase the number to 22 is not supported by Edenbridge Town Council.

However, to support the need for additional sites within the district, it accepts the proposal to provide 10 pitches at Seven Acre Farm, the existing seven pitches plus an additional three, providing that no further extension of either site is allowed during the Plan period.
