Paragraph 5.36 seeks to ensure that the ¡°best¡± land is allocated for new, permanent

gypsy and traveller pitches. There is no explanation of what is meant by ¡°best¡±.

Wouldn¡¯t ¡°most suitable when measured against the criteria set out in Policy 11¡± be

more appropriate? How would the inclusion of more sites than are required result in

the best land being allocated if all of them were to meet the criteria in the policy?
