Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Accommodation Needs of Gypsies and Travellers

Representation ID: 13122

COMMENT Suffolk Coastal District Council (Mr Mark Edgerley)

Summary:

SCDC would suggest that the tables presented for Gypsies and Travelling Showpeople are expanded to show the need across the wider Housing Market Area. Only showing the need in BMSDC is only part of the picture. Considering the issue across the Housing Market Area will also ensure that the cross boundary needs are fully taken into account in accordance with the Duty to Co-operate.

COMMENT Mr Vic Durrant

Summary:

Although the JLP policy relates to both BDC and Mid Suffolk District Councils, the report suggests that the majority of the need is in Mid Suffolk. The recent Cromer incident has exacerbated concerns of residents on personal security type issues. It appears to have occurred when travellers gathered in large numbers therefore, limiting sites to short stay and small number of vehicles (say 3 days/3plots) with sites well spread apart (say 20 miles) would better support and mitigate the legitimate concern of the residents.
