Call for sites – Designated Stopping Place for gypsies and travellers

The Council is asking people for their suggestions of potential locations where a Designated Stopping Place could be established in the borough.

By law the Council must assess and meet the need for both permanent and temporary Gypsy and Traveller pitches.

This is also a key requirement of the Local Plan, a document that provides the framework for future growth of the area.

A Designated Stopping Place is an authorised site that can be used as a temporary stopping place for members of the Gypsy and Traveller community who are travelling through North East Lincolnshire.

The most recent Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment for North East Lincolnshire, carried out in 2014, found that 15 temporary pitches are needed if the borough is to fulfil the objectively assessed need.

Fifteen pitches will provide space for 30 caravans and these could be placed in one location or split across two or three, depending on the shape and size of the site.

The call for sites closes on 19 January 2018.
