Abstract

In September 2011 Maidstone Borough Council commissioned the Salford Housing & Urban Studies Unit (SHUSU) at the University of Salford to produce a Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Accommodation Assessment for the borough. The primary purpose of this report is to provide an evidence base to inform the future development of planning policies through the Local Development Framework. This report presents the projection of requirements for the following periods: 2011 – 2016; 2016 – 2021; 2021 – 2026. The assessment was undertaken by conducting a review of the following data sources: previous assessments of need and information submitted through the previous regional planning process; the policy and guidance context; the bi-annual Caravan Count; information from the local authority with regards to pitch provision and supply; information from key stakeholders; a survey of 115 Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople households currently residing in Maidstone borough.
