Future Gypsy and Traveller Sites

Lancaster City Council is preparing a Gypsy and Traveller, and Travelling Showpeople Site Allocations Development Plan Document (DPD) that will identify land to accommodate Gypsy and Travellers, and Travelling Showpeople in the District.

As part of this process, we are undertaking a ‘Call for Sites’ which provides an opportunity for individuals and organisations to suggest any sites that they consider might be suitable for allocation as a Gypsy and Traveller or Travelling Showperson site. Proposals could be for either new sites or an expansion or intensification of an existing site. Proposals are invited for permanent residential sites or transit sites / temporary stopping places.

If you are interested in this or wish to submit a potential site, please visit our Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation webpage.

Please note: The deadline for suggesting potential sites as part of this ‘Call for Sites’ is Friday 22nd June 2018.
