Gypsy and Traveller Accomodation - Northamptonshire

From Kettering Borough Council

The Council is seeking to find suitable sites for Gypsies and Travellers

As part of the Council’s emerging Site Specific Proposals Local Development Document the Council is seeking to find suitable sites for Gypsies and Travellers. The Council is required by law to provide suitable sites for Gypsies and Travellers under Section 225 of the Housing Act 2004.

The Council has made a study of land across the whole borough of Kettering and has now identified a pool of potential sites. All the sites have been assessed thoroughly to determine which of them are the most suitable, available and capable of being delivered. The method and findings of this research, and the pool of potential sites, is available on the Council’s website, and will be reported in full to the Planning Policy Committee meeting on 21st May 2013.

After this date a full public consultation period lasting for six weeks will take place in June 2013 and the public will be able to comment on the proposals. All comments will be taken into account by the Council as it continues to look at, and consider, potential sites during the rest of the year.

A further consultation will then take place on the plan before it is submitted to the Secretary of State to be examined.
