  • Consultation period: 28/01/2019 - 08/04/2019 ~ 14:00
  • Audience: All residents, businesses, stakeholders, third-sector and other interested parties and partner organisations.
  • Area: Countywide
  • Council department / service: Environment, Planning Services

Why are we consulting

The County Council has undertaken and published a Gypsy Traveller Accommodation Needs Assessment (GTAA) which identifies a current unmet need for Gypsy and Traveller pitches within the County. The GTAA also identifies an unmet need for Travelling Show people.

As part of the preparation of the evidence base for the Carmarthenshire Local Development Plan (LDP) and meet the identified unmet need, the Council is inviting landowners, developers, and any other interested parties to suggest sites for Gypsy and Travellers and Travelling Show people for potential consideration within the LDP. It should be noted that the unmet need for Gypsy and traveller pitches is within the Llanelli area and only sites within the general location of Llanelli will be considered. For Travelling Show people, the call for sites is county wide.

Next Steps
