The Housing Act 2004 placed a duty upon local authorities to produce assessments of accommodation need for Gypsies and Travellers. In 2006, a Norfolk-wide Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment (GTAA) was undertaken through the Gypsy and Traveller Liaison Group, led by the County Council, to look at accommodation and needs across the county. This GTAA provided an overview of the accommodation and related needs and experiences of the Gypsy and Traveller population. In May 2013 Breckland Council commissioned the Salford Housing & Urban Studies Unit (SHUSU) at the University of Salford together with the Cambridgeshire Research Group (CRG) from Cambridgeshire County Council to produce a Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Accommodation Needs Assessment. 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. 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; census 2011 data; information from the local authority with regards to pitch provision and supply; information from key stakeholders; a survey of 92 Gypsies and Travellers currently residing in site-based and bricks and mortar accommodation across Breckland.
