POS welcomes the Government's consultation on changes to Planning Policy for Travellers But Expresses Concern

Date: 19/9/2014

The changes to Planning Policy for Travellers is a consolidation of recent Ministerial Statements, particularly in relation to the Green Belt.  However, the Society believes it will place an unnecessary burden on local authorities and has potential for legal challenge. POS will be preparing a full response to the consultation.

Catriona Riddell, the Society's Strategic Planning Specialist, commented that "the proposed changes to the definition of 'travellers' which distinguishes between travellers that travel and those that have ceased to travel, will be very difficult to apply in practice."
