Recommendations on Gypsy and Traveller site allocation

21 June 2017

Newark and  Sherwood District Council will consider a change to its approach on the proposed Gypsy and Traveller site allocation on Quibell’s Lane, Newark.

Having considered the representations received as part of the consultation on potential development allocations earlier in the year, the group of members which oversees the development plan process, the Local Development Framework Task Group, has concluded that the site is no longer deliverable.

It has recommended that full council should not allocate the site for Gypsy and  Travellers and delay the submission of detailed development sites until later in the process, while continuing with consultation on the finalised version of the Core Strategy in July and August.

A report on the issue will be presented to full council on the  July 11, 2017,  which will consider the recommendations and a range of possible alternative approaches for the delivery of Gypsy and Traveller sites.
