Gypsy and Travellers

In order to the support the Council’s new Local Plan, we have worked alongside all of the East Sussex local authorities, and the South Downs National Park to commission a joint Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Accommodation Needs Assessment for the study period between 2021 and 2040. The requirement to assess the accommodation needs of Gypsies, Travellers and Travelling Showpeople is established through national planning guidance contained in the Planning Policy for Travellers Sites (PPTS) document published by Government in 2015. This study provides a summary of accommodation need for all local authorities in East Sussex for both their permanent and transit needs for pitches/plots over the study period.
