New traveller planning guidance welcomed

Gordon Henderson MP has welcomed the announcement by the Government that new planning guidance on traveller sites will be implemented following a consultation last year as part of the Localism Bill.

The new guidance, which replaces the old Labour planning circulars on travellers - Circular 01/06, will see a variety of changes including:
  • Abolishing top-down regional targets.
  • Strengthening the protection of Green Belt land and the open countryside.
  • Deleting the compulsory purchase of land for traveller sites by local councils.
  • Removing the restrictions on councils to use enforcement action.
  • Providing suitable, authorised sites to councils for use as traveller sites.
Mr Henderson said:

"The previous Labour Government introduced a number of policies which were flawed, undermined local Government and damaged the planning system so I welcome this new guidance, which I hope will put an end to some of the abuses we have seen in so many of our local communities."
