Should traveller sites be in the green belt?


South Bucks council has launched a consultation looking at options for sites for gypsies and travelling communities up to 2023.

The consultation is asking whether existing sites should be safeguarded to prevent them being converted to alternative uses in the future. It also wants to know whether there is support for expanding existing sites, though is it suggesting not above the recommended size of 15 units. There are three sites with temporary permission. Should these be given permanent permission? Should new sites be allocated?

The council says that gypsy and traveller sites should not be in the green belt, except in exceptional circumstances.

The consultation closes on 16 April.
