Meeting about South Cambridgeshire’s need for more permanent Gypsy and Traveller pitches
An independent study to help some Eastern Region councils plan for Gypsy and Traveller housing needs over the next two decades will be considered by a housing boss next week. The report, commissioned by nine of the housing authorities in the Eastern Region, shows further Gypsy and Traveller pitches are needed across the region to meet needs now and in the future. As expected, the study confirmed there is a need for further pitches across the region, including more permanent pitches from South Cambridgeshire to meet the need of people currently living on existing sites with temporary planning permission.
