What has been consulted on?

Rossendale Borough Council has submitted its Local Plan to the Minister for Housing, Communities and Local Government for independent examination. One of the actions requested by the Inspectors, after the discussion on Matter 4 (Other Housing Needs), was for the Council to consider its position in relation to the provision of Gypsy and Traveller transit site and provide information to the Inspectors as soon as possible. This is in light of the need to replace the previously identified transit site at Futures Park, Bacup as this is now no longer available.
