Planning and Travellers

Date: 25/11/2014

POS does not support the proposed change in definition of travellers. We are concerned that the proposed change is based on a very narrow understanding and appreciation of the ethnic and cultural values and way of life associated with travellers, as it implies that travellers are only defined by how much they travel away from their homes. 

The draft planning guidance does not include any reference to criteria for sites to meet need. It would be useful to have some criteria and guidance regarding planning for traveller sites both in terms of need assessment and site development / delivery, which could be incorporated into the NPPF and would add clarity.
