holding answer 10 June 2011

On 13 April, my Department published a draft planning policy statement on Traveller sites, which we intend will replace Circular 01/2006 (“Planning for Gypsy and Traveller Sites”) and Circular 04/2007 (“Planning for Travelling Showpeople”). It is open for public consultation until 6 July and a copy has been placed in the Library of the House. Although the circulars are currently extant, decision makers are entitled to have regard to the fact that it is proposed to withdraw them and replace them with this new policy.
