The Home Office is conducting an Equality Impact Assessment on the use of Linton-On-Ouse as an accommodation centre.

Key local partners and stakeholders have been notified of the plans for Linton-on-Ouse. We are bringing together statutory and other agencies on a regular basis both in the implementation stage and when the site is operational.

We are also engaging with the local community and discussing the site with them through scheduled meetings and forums.
