Gypsy and Traveller Site Options
6. Evidence Base
6.1 Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment, 2012
The Council needed a robust, independent evidence base on which to draw, so commissioned a new GTAA for Warwick District, to include the needs of Travelling Show People. The resulting document was published in November 2012 which demonstrated a need for a total of 31 permanent pitches over a 15 year period, 25 of which are required within the first 5 years of the Local Plan and a 12 pitch transit site to be delivered over the Plan period. A five plot site already exists in Warwick District for Travelling Show People and there has been no additional need identified through the GTAA. This site therefore satisfies demand through the Local Plan period and no additional plots are required.
