Call for Sites (2022): Gypsy and Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Accommodation

Call for Sites 2022 - Gypsy and Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Accommodation

Surrey Heath Borough Council is in the process of preparing a new Local Plan, which sets out the Council's preferred approach to development in the Borough up to 2038. 

As part of this process, the Council is committed to meeting the accommodation needs of the Borough’s Gypsy and Traveller communities, as identified in the Council's update Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment (2020), by allocating sites for new pitches and plots in the Local Plan. 

In order to identify the most appropriate sites for new pitches and plots, the Council is undertaking this Call for Sites, alongside other site-identification work, to invite landowners, developers, local organisations and other interested parties, to submit land in Surrey Heath for consideration as sites to deliver new Gypsy and Traveller and Travelling Showpeople accommodation.
