To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, how many and which local authorities have met the requirement (a) in the Planning Policy for Traveller Sites 2015 to identify and maintain a supply of specific deliverable sites, sufficient to provide five years' worth of sites, against their locally set target and (b) to include the same outcome for each of the next five, six and 10 years as set down in the Planning Policy for Travellers Sites document.
