In November 2011 Solihull Metropolitan 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: 1st January 2012 – 31st December 2016; 1st January 2017 – 31st December 2021; 1st January 2022 – 31st December 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; and a survey of 75 Gypsies and Travellers currently residing in site-based and bricks and mortar accommodation across the borough of Solihull.
