Emerging Local Plan

Consultation on Gypsy and Traveller Transit Site

The consultation on a proposed alternative Gypsy and Traveller Transit Site to be identified within the Rossendale Local Plan has now closed. The representations will be sent in due course to the Planning Inspectors.


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.
