The search for potential sites is necessary to deal with the high number of unauthorised encampments taking place in the City in recent years, an identified need for Gypsy and Traveller accommodation and to comply with Government Guidance. Between February and July 2012, extensive public consultation was undertaken by the Council on three potential Gypsy and Traveller sites in the City. These sites were chosen by the Council’s Executive from a shortlist of eight following an initial officer assessment of nearly 350 Council-owned sites.
An analysis of the consultation exercise and the officer recommendations arising from it is set out in the report published on 18 December 2012.
The City Mayor’s full decision is appended.
The City Mayor is required to take a decision following the consultation process.
Further detail in relation to the options is set out in the report.
