Coastal West Sussex Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment (GTAA) October 2018

The primary objective of this Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Accommodation Assessment (GTAA) October 2018, is to provide a robust assessment of current and future need for Gypsies, Travellers and Travelling Show People.  The GTAA will form the evidence base to inform the allocation of sites through the Arun District Council Gypsy and Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Site Allocations Development Plan Document (DPD).  This DPD will identify and allocate land for permanent pitches to meet the need identified to 2036.
