Press Release

Monday 24 June 2013

Consultation on Fareham Traveller sites now open

Fareham Borough Council would like people to have their say on the new Gypsies, Travellers and Travelling Showpeople Policy in a consultation running until the end of Monday 22 July, 2013.                         

The Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Policy has been prepared­ to guide the allocation of appropriate permanent sites compatible with the Local Plan  (this is a planning document which shows how the Council  would like development to take place across the Borough) and outlines the criteria  by which planning applications for these sites is considered.

The policy proposes 5 additional pitches to be considered across two existing sites: The Retreat, Newgate Lane and a change from 2 to 4 pitches; and 302A Southampton Road and a change from 2 to 5 pitches.

Executive Member for Strategic Planning and Environment, Councillor Keith Evans encourages residents to have their say stating "it will be helpful to receive constructive feedback that can help inform decisions regarding the suitability of providing additional pitches on these existing sites".                                                                                                                                                                                  

Consultations can be submitted by completing the online survey www.fareham.gov.uk/consultations. Paper copies and different formats of the consultation materials are available by phoning 01329 236100 or visiting the Civic Office and libraries in Fareham.

The Council is prepared to consider alternative sites in order to ensure the overall requirements are met.  The Council would therefore welcome suggestions from private landowners who may be able to identify a site to help meet this need.
