Herefordshire Council Consultation on Travellers’ sites

Herefordshire council is consulting on its policy for Travllers’ sites.

‘The council is producing a Travellers’ Sites Document as part of its Local Plan. This will focus on the accommodation needs of the Traveller community (Gypsies, Travellers and Travelling Show People) up to 2031.

We have completed a preferred options consultation in 2016 to identify potential sites. We have made changes to the Development Plan Document (DPD) and are now asking for your views in terms of soundness of the draft DPD and the assessment of accommodation needs that has informed it.

To be considered sound, the DPD should be:

  • Positively prepared – including does it meet the development requirements and will they be sustainable
  • Justified – has it taken the right approach and is it based on reliable evidence
  • Effective – are the proposals deliverable
  • Consistent – are the policies in line with national planning policy’
