Consultation Starts: 25-Jan-2016

Consultation Ends: 31-Mar-2016

We have recently commissioned work to review the accommodation needs of gypsies and travellers. This information will help us make decisions around the potential allocation of land to improve accommodation provision.

As part of this work we have commissioned Opinion Research Services (ORS), who are an independent social research company, to prepare a new Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment (GTANA).

ORS have been visiting families on Gypsy and Traveller Sites across the study area. They would also like to speak to members of the community who live in in bricks and mortar accommodation, to make sure all members of the travelling community are included in this research. We would like you to be involved in this study, what you say is important.

If you, or someone from your family, could spare the time to answer some questions please let us know. Questions will be about where you live now and where you and your children need to live in the future. Anything you tell us will be kept confidential.

If you would like to take part in the study please contact Claire Thomas on (01792) 535337 or email

Further information can be viewed in the Gypsy, Traveller and Showmen Accommodation Needs Assessment letter.
